KINGDOM PHILATELIC ASSOCIATION
On 27 October 1966, 35 stamp collecting enthusiasts met at Robertson Hall on the campus of Westminster College as an organizational meeting to form a local stamp collecting society.
On 24 January 1967, 53 stamp collecting enthusiasts met as the Kingdom Philatelic Association at the Court Street Methodist Church in Fulton, Missouri.
The Kingdom Philatelic Association is Chapter 702 of the American Philatelic Society.
Currently, the Kingdom Philatelic Association meets monthly on the third Thursday at 7:00 P.M. at the Callaway Electric Coop Energy Center in Fulton Missouri. At each meeting, time is allotted for members to buy/sell/trade stamps among themselves, and the club provides APS (American Philatelic Society) circuit books. These are available in a wide selection of both countries and topics.
Also, at the meetings, short programs on a variety of stamp subjects are presented by the members.
A monthly newsletter is prepared by the Secretary, and mailed (or emailed) to the members.
While the current membership is small, most of the members are quite advanced in their collections, and are happy to assist newcomers to the hobby.
Anyone with an interest in stamp collecting is welcome to attend meetings.
