2017 Annual Holiday Dinner
What follows are a few select images from the Society 2017 Annual Holiday Dinner for Members, Guests and Friends. A great time was a had by all, with an excellent cocktail hour and sit down meal; a gift exchange; an award ceremony; a thank you to our outgoing President Doug Milliken for a job well done; a keynote speaker; and the presentation of the 2018 Society Officers. We hope to see you next year!


2017 32nd LANCOPEX Stamp Show & Exhibition
Now that The 32nd LANCOPEX 2017 Stamp Show is behind us, we are looking forward to the 33rd LANCOPEX Stamp Show in 2018. More details shall follow soon. And to our PSLC members: On behalf of the Lancopex Manpower Committee, Bill and Paul want to give you a great big thanks, a shout-out from the rooftops. The number of volunteers say it all – with forty of you working the show in myriad capacities, some in several ways and/or several time slots. Some of you were there from sundown Thursday through sundown Saturday. We could not have done it without you. This is why APS sees the PSLC as a great affiliate.

These numbers assure the longevity of our Lancaster club with a deep well (or a deep bench if you are a sports enthusiast). Shows have folded with the retirement of death of the “stamp show committee,” but with PSLC, each of you stepped up so that someone did not have to do it all. With your work, vision, and enthusiasm, LANCOPEX will thrive for many years to come. The U.S.P.O.D. is back on board (even the postmaster stopped by-his second year!), there is a waiting list of dealers-some of them young; Dr. DiComo’s revised website and Facebook page have attracted many, the food was great-as always, and the dealers left happy.

We’ll have more of the data in the June newsletter. It don’t get no better than that. STAY TUNED – The 33rd LANCOPEX 2018 Stamp Show.



In Memoriam: A few days before LANCOPEX 2017, we reported with great sadness the passing of Jack Ott, longtime philatelist, stamp and cover dealer and appraiser. He was loved and respected by all that knew him. The PSLC will miss his smile and funny stories. We send our condolences to his family and many friends.


2010 Annual Holiday Dinner

1999 14th LANCOPEX Stamp Show & Exhibition
Some great photos from the Society archive, club members and volunteers at a LANCOPEX preparation meeting creating cachets, stamping postcards for mass mailing, etc. From the look of it, all are having a great time.
