Our next business meeting will be Saturday, January 11, 2020.

Please let D. A. know if you would be able to make a presentation at a 2020 chapter business meeting.

Many thanks to Bob McDermott for his work on holding the chapter auction.

We are assembling collections of FS-1 (presidents Scott #2216-2219) and FS-3 (Constitution States Scott #2336-2348). Both of these covers were part of multi-chapter AFDCS projects.

Dr. Stanley Scott visited our September meeting. He has a selection of covers for sale. Please send the topics you are interested in to him at 502 Terry Ln., Heath TX 75032. His phone is (214) 505-5840.

Bob Emrick was awarded 2 awards at Americover: 2nd place Category 1 (HD/HP) and 2nd place Category 4 (HP printed). As always, Bob is at or near the top of the cachetmaker awards list!

We are planning to have a table at the Mid-Cities Stamp Show in 2020. We will need volunteers to staff the table.

Please be thinking about whether the chapter wants to make a 1-frame exhibit at OKPEX 2020.

The "Meeting Highlights" have been updated with new presentations for several topics. Many thanks to the presenters. If you have made a presentation and have electronic files please send them so those can be added to the website. If you just have paper notes, that will work also. If you will send the notes to DA he will make copies and return your notes.

OKPEX Stamp Show June 19-20 2020, Midwest City, Oklahoma.

Mid-Cities Stamp Expo November 13-14 2020, Grapevine, Texas.
