West Toronto club honours three members

The West Toronto Stamp Club (WTSC) has presented four of its members with “loyalty membership certificates” for 25 years of continuous membership.

Waldemar and Ann Stoeckl joined the WTSC in 1995-96, Ted Kupka joined the following year and Garfield Portch joined in 1997-98.

Due to the years-long pandemic restrictions on public gatherings – which shuttered in-person club meetings and other events for about 30 months – the WTSC honoured each of the members this spring.

“Thankfully our resumed in-person meetings allow us to present these awards publicly,” reads a statement in the May WTSC Bulletin, the club’s monthly newsletter.
