Gus Boersma of the Penticton & District Stamp Club and Andrina Iliffe

Gus Boersma of the Penticton & District Stamp Club and Andrina Iliffe, constituency assistant to South Okanagan-West Kootenay MP Richard Cannings, unveil the “cover” of a rendering by Randy Manuel. On the first day, the Stamp Club sold out a limited edition of 99 covers of Penticton’s first mail box in 1938 and a series of stamps from the 1970s celebrating Canada’s postal service. They were available for a minimum $5 donation to the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation as part of the Okanagan Historical Society’s display at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre until Sunday, marking national Heritage Week and the Canada 150 celebrations.
