Today is the final day of Orapex 2018—the Ottawa RA Centre Philatelic Exhibition—which is being held in Ottawa.
Organized by volunteers from the RA Stamp Club; the Amicale des philatélistes de l’Outaouais; and the Ottawa Philatelic Society, among others, OrapexOrapex is held at the RA Centre on 2451 Riverside Dr. This year’s show will recognize the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, which ended the Great War, with the theme of the military. Admission and parking are both free.
The show also features a bourse with about 40 philatelic dealers from across the country. Be sure to visit Canadian Stamp News as well as Coin and Stamp Supplies at tables 38 and 39 on the bourse, which will be open today from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
