Welcome to the Fred C. Sawyer
North TX Chapter 56
of the American First Day Cover Society
Texas Philatelic Association Unit #6

About us:

We are a local chapter of the American First Day Cover Society (AFDCS) located in the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. Chapter meetings are usually held on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 11:00 A.M. at the Wineburgh Philatelic Library in the Special Collections area of the McDermott Library at the University of Texas at Dallas. Except during the summer months we generally meet on a monthly basis. We meet to study, trade and discuss First Day Covers, Event Covers and other items of philatelic interest.

The Chapter is open to all those interested in First Day Cover collecting from the beginner to the advanced collector. If you are a stamp collector and think you might have leanings towards FDC collecting - come and visit. For information about our chapter please contact D. A. Lux:
