About The Wilkinsburg Stamp Club

 



Wilkinsburg Stamp Club

 

The Wilkinsburg Stamp Club was founded as the Westinghouse Stamp Club in the early 1930s. The Club met in Wilkinsburg at a Westinghouse building on Pennwood Avenue. Shortly after World War II, the prominent members of the Club formed the present organization. We extend a cordial invitation to visitors to attend one of our meetings.

 

Monthly Club Meetings

 

The Wilkinsburg Stamp Club meets in the Lou Yagle Room of the Churchill Borough Building, 2300 William Penn Highway, Churchill, PA 15235 (Parkway East, exit 13) from 1 P.M. to 4 P.M. on the second and fourth Sunday of each month (except for conflicting holidays). Only one meeting during Summer months, June, July and August (See Calendar for details.)

 

The business meeting starts at 2 P.M. Members may examine circuit books before and after the meeting, philatelic gossip is exchanged. Coffee and treats are provided for your enjoyment.

 

At the second meeting of each month we have philatelic related events. It might be an auction, an APS slide show presentation, member “show-and tell” presentations, etc. And, of special note for avid fans, during Steelers season we set up a TV in the meeting room!

 

WILKPEX, Annual Exhibition

 

Since 1951, we hold an annual exhibition and bourse in the spring (usually mid to late April) of each year. WILKPEX features exhibits, a youth area, a members' flea market, a U.S.P.S. substation, and about 15 dealers showing their wares.

 

WILKPEX is known worldwide for its special Satirical Souvenir Sheet issue, which has become a collectible in its own right. (Visit our Gallery to see examples of several past years' issues or read the history of our Souvenir Sheets.)

 

WILKPEX offers free parking and admission.
