BVSC Meetings General Information:

Except for April, we start regularly scheduled monthly club meetings at 6:30 with a half hour of informal socializing, stamp talk and networking. There are no meetings in July and August.


The formal meeting starts at 7:00 pm with club news and business, followed by the program. We typically have a 50/50 drawing at each meeting (3 tickets/$2) to benefit our educational programs. Visitors are encouraged to join us at 6:30 for a meet and greet with our regular members.
