STAMP COLLECTING FOR CHARITY:  

Flo Reid writes:  

“Just a reminder to keep collecting your postage stamps .  Christmas stamps are very desirable to collectors.   I have recently sent 10,044 to Oxfam Canada and they informed me that they were very pleased with our stamps.  Thank you to those who have been mailing me their stamps.  I have had some very interesting conversations and reminiscing over our RCAF days.  E-mail me and I will give you my address:  flobobreid@shaw.ca.  Thanks for your help in this worthwhile endeavour." 

You can also phone Flo at 403-475-6738.

Bob and I are well and staying put.  COVID numbers are scary especially here in Alberta.  Blessings for Christmas and the New Year.

"Wondered if this might be of interest.  This was in our Ladies Probus monthly newsletter for November.  Thought it nice of them to recognize my Service - such as it was."
Unfortunately, the picture Marion sent won't display properly, but you can read about it here.
