Here's the venue for our long anticipated meeting on the expertizing programme at the Vinnie Green Foundation.

The North Toronto Stamp Club meeting on Thursday, May 26th will be held at the Vincent G. Greene Philatelic Research Foundation, 10 Summerhill Ave. at 7:30.

The programme will consist of a tour of Canada's finest philatelic library, the Harry Sutherland Philatelic Library then there will be a presentation by Ted Nixon on the expertizing program available to collectors wanting their stamps and covers evaluated.

The Foundation's reference collection will be shown, along with some of the tools used and a look at some forgeries and reconstructed stamps. You may get a chance to "expertize" !!

Directions: The Foundation is on Summerhill at the corner with Yonge. It's five blocks south of St. Clair, and runs east of Yonge. The entrance is up a set of stone stairs. There will be a greeter at the door to meet you. There is free parking on south side of Summerhill. (If you are a walker, you might consider parking at Yorkminster and walking down.) The Summerhill Subway Station is one block south of Summerhill.

We thank our Programme Director, Peter Butler ( for arranging our programme.
