SAPA cancels weekly meetings through end of August
There will continue to be no local stamp club meetings through at least the end of August for members of the San Antonio Philatelic Association.
According to an email distributed by SAPA Treasurer Fred Groth on Friday, the church at which the club holds its Friday evening meetings has elected not to reopen its facilities until there is a positive turn in COVID-19 numbers, which seems unlikely to occur in the immediate future as San Antonio city officials have been reporting hundreds of newly confirmed cases each day.
While I find this disappointing on a personal level since summer is really the only time of year that I’m able to attend, the club’s membership is comprised predominantly of individuals in age groups that seem to be hit hardest if they catch the disease, so the church’s decision may be for the best. Hopefully things like stamp club meetings will get back to normal sooner rather than later!
