The Dumaguete Stamp Collectors Club, in coordination with the Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee, is set to do a philatelic exhibit titled “Nature, Culture, and History Through Stamps.” The exhibit opens on 21 August 2010 at the Robert and Metta Silliman Library Main Exhibition Hall at 3 p.m. {{more}}

The club is composed of philatelic enthusiasts from Dumaguete and neighboring towns. According to club member Gary Rosales, the club “aims to promote the advancement of stamp collecting as a means of strengthening love of country and fostering international understanding and friendship.” Part of their mission is for members to be given opportunities to display their stamp collections in non-competitive and competitive exhibitions.

The exhibit, which runs until August 28, will feature Philippine stamps from the Spanish Dominion, American and Japanese Occupations, Commonwealth and Republic periods as well as those coming from different countries the world over.

For inquiries, please call (035) 422-6002 loc. 520 or loc. 250, or 09173235953. (Ian Rosales Casocot/SUCAC)
