The Memphis Stamp Collectors Society has been a charter, American Philatelic Society (APS) Chapter, since May 1963.
The membership is drawn from the metropolitan Memphis, TN area with members from Mississippi and Arkansas regularly joining their Tennessee associates.
Meetings, have been cancelled due to Covid meeting restrictions and our concern for the health of members and associates. We hope to initiate ZOOM, (virtual), meetings on a monthly basis.
Please check back for updates.
The challenge is engaging the younger generations and we congratulate a fellow club member for her innovation using stamps as a teaching aid.
The MSCS club would be happy to assist school teachers in the Greater Mid-South (Memphis, TN, USA) with the cost of using stamps in their school curriculum.
MSCS offers two, $150.00, Grant Application awards, with the opportunity to re-apply for a second semester. Please visit the Grant Page for additional information. Apply now.
MSCS is returning to live meetings in early July. For further information, please see the Contact Us Page. We will also update via email. Please say yes to accept cookies and join our mailing list.
