SAMA Office Say ‘Thank You’

3 Sep

In the recent newsletter, the office mentioned the fact that books of stamps (unused) are always welcome. Lots of members read this and the office would like to say Thank You.

Many members when they contact they office apologise that they are unable to make donations regularly to SAMA. Last year when sending an s.a.e. for a ticket for Remembrance Day, one member put the remaining unused postage stamps in with his request. These were very useful. So, in the recent newsletter the office mentioned this. WOW! What a response.

A BIG thank you to all those who read this paragraph and responded. This is a great help to the office and SAMA 82.
