Monthly Meetings

Guests and new members of any age and every interest and experience level are welcome at CPC meetings. Regular meetings of The Columbus Philatelic Club are held in the THE GUILD ROOM at the WESLEY GLEN WELLNESS CENTER. Wesley Glen is a retirement community just West of North High Street and just North of Graceland Shopping Center. From North High Street at one block North of the stoplight at Graceland, turn on Fenway Road. There is a stop light at Fenway and High. Travel West on Fenway until you see a parking lot on your left. You may park in the spots marked visitor or park on Fenway and enter the Wellness Center at the West entrance. Continue inside past the desk and on your left will be the GUILD ROOM. After 7 pm, you may have to ring the bell to obtain entry. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of the month. A picnic is planned during the summer.

The Club Events Calendar contains details about upcoming meetings. Meetings start at 7:00 PM with social time, trading, and selling. The formal meeting starts at 7:30 PM with a short business meeting and a program of interest on many different aspects of stamp collecting. There are mini-auctions of stamp and philatelic literature items at each meeting and one or two commission auctions during the year.
