The Club is holding its 2009 Winter Bourse on Saturday November 28 at the Yorkminster Park Baptist Church.

North Toronto’s bourses help the Club cover its costs and are one of the highpoints of its curriculum.

We are always grateful to those able to assist with the gym and clubroom
preparations late on Friday afternoon and the post bourse clean up.

Bourses have accommodated hundreds of
collectors and visitors and have seen our membership
grow as a result. Each bourse gives a venue for about
two dozen vendors to showcase their stamp wares and
to meet with their regular collector/customers and gain
new ones.

Saturday November 28, 2009 10:00am to 4:00pm
Yorkminster Park Baptist Church
1585 Yonge Street, Toronto.
