This is a list of some of our more elaborate and far flung projects. If you thought stamp collecting was just for the old folks, check out these puppies....
The Seekonk Children's Stamp Club is part of the children's programs at the wonderful Seekonk Public Library. The kids meet on Saturday afternoons during the school year. The kids get a chance to build a US stamp collection, as well as trying their hand at topical stamp collecting. Other activities incude creating First Day Covers, event covers, and even Polar Philately!! The children also get the chance to build stamp exhibits and put them on display at the Rhode Island Philatelic Society's annual stamp show. Materials and registration are free for the children, however parents must contact the Children's Librarian to register. A link to the library site is provided below. The Children's club is supported by the Rhode Island Philatelic Society. Society members mentor and instruct new collectors on how to collect, display, and exhibit stamps and postal history. Stamps and materials are provided by generous donations from members and friends. Collecting supplies are provided free of charge to the kids!
