Hello stamp folks. The Erie Stamp Club email list received some sad news from Frank Sovec- here is the message he typed:
I hate to be the bearer of sad tidings, but if you haven’t seen the obituaries yet, our good friend and newsletter editor John Tomikel passed away on May 20th. I know his presence will be sorely missed at our meetings.
The meeting normally scheduled for May 28 has been cancelled. I spoke with Gary Diley and we decided it was in the best interest of the membership to cancel in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully we can go forward with the meeting scheduled for June 11th but I’ll let you know.
I spoke to Reverend Charles McClung of the Church. At this time it is closed to everybody. He will be meeting with his Board of Directors this Wednesday evening in regard to this, plus their Church functions & congregation. He will call me with the results of that meeting on Thursday morning. He did say that if we wanted to hold a meeting in the parking lot there would be no objection or charge. Be well !! Frank M. Sovec – Secretary / Treasurer, Erie Stamp Club
I just wanted to be certain that members had access to this information, even if you are not on the email list. WTH
