North Toronto club marks 85 years

This October, the North Toronto Stamp Club (NTSC) marks its 85th anniversary.

Chapter #5 of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, the NTSC remained a staple of the Canadian philatelic scene through much of the 20th century.

“Because of everything that has happened since 1938, 1938 seems like a very long time ago,” wrote President Klaus Hintz in the club’s October newsletter. “The Second World War and the conflicts that followed in Asia, Korea, and Vietnam eclipsed all other events. Our club has proven its staying power and is firing on all cylinders. Our communications, the website and our newsletter garner awards. Our bourses are a major feature in the philatelic life of Toronto. Our club held exhibitions for 80 of those 85 years, and several of our members frequently won awards for their outstanding displays. And we are having fun doing all this while getting to know one another in person.”

On Oct. 26, the NTSC will host an anniversary dinner with members and guests at Toronto’s Eglinton Grand, a National Historic Site built two years before the NTSC formed.
