ESPER at World Stamp Show - NY2016

ESPER, was a big hit at the WSS-NY2016 held in New York City at the Jacob Javits Convention Center from May 28-June 4, 2016.  We had members attending from CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, MD, MI, NE, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, VA, WV, WA , Canada, and New Zealand.  We had a general meeting, a presentation by stamp artist Jerry Pinkney, the  launch of our new website, a silent auction, and the unveiling of our new banner.  Our ESPER exhibit frame won a society ribbon.  We signed up 21 new members! 

We would like to thank our WSS-NY2016 planning committee: Jackie Burgesss, Bill Carreker, Warachal Faison, Mani Gilyard, M. Rosina Major, Clarence McKnight, Don Neal, Vernetta Nelson, and Gloria Perez.
