The Stamp Guy
The Torch is coming through Golden. And Canada Post has joined the celebration.
Last January Canada Post began its commemoration of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics with several stamps, souvenir sheets and post cards. More will be issued January 12, 2010 and in February during the Games.
Now, in addition, on January 19, a representative of Canada Post, Jim Brough, will present the Golden Post Office with a special cancel noting the passage of the Olympic Torch through Golden. You can advertise our Olympic pride on the world stage with this special commemorative cancel on your mail. We expect it will be available through the end of the Games in February.
The Golden Stamp Club will be making some cards and covers (envelopes with printed designs, stamps and cancels) with the Torch cancel. If you are interested and would like one, they are available for cost ($2). Call Ron Tabbert at 250-344-5939 before January 25.
