On behalf of the Winnipeg Pin Collectors Club, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. May you be blessed with good health, prosperity and much happiness. The Winnipeg Pin Collectors Club has something to offer people of all ages from youths to adults to seniors.
This year the pin club is celebrating its 35th Anniversary. The pin club continues to grow and prosper thanks to ongoing support from our regular and corporate members as well as from the many new members who have joined our pin club in the past year. Our international pin club has members in the USA, the United Kingdom, Denmark, France, Australia and Germany as well as throughout Canada
Due to Covid-19, the year 2021 did not turn out the way everyone in the world had expected. All of us remain optimistic for the year 2022. We are all looking forward to someday being able to go back to a more normal life.
Our 2022 club pin features a Red Headed Woodpecker. It commemorates our
35th Anniversary. New pin club members have the opportunity to either select one 2022 pin
in a choice of four colours as part of their $20.00 membership dues or pay $40.00 for their membership dues and receive a complete set of four limited edition 2022 pins. The colours featured are Green, Blue, White and Yellow.
Only 125 pin sets were produced which makes the pin set a very limited production. We are very close to selling out of these four-pin sets. As has been done in the past, Laurie Artiss the Pin People are the producers of our club pins. They have a reputation for excellence throughout the world which is very important to people who value having high quality pins in their collections.
Due to Covid-19, there are no immediate plans to hold any pin club meetings. When it is safe to do so, the pin club will consider holding its first meeting. No one can predict exactly when that might be. I am encouraging all pin club members to please consider reaching out to their fellow pin club members either by email or phone or by mail to do some pin trading. Contact information is provided to all pin club members in the form of the 2022 WPCC membership list. I wish all of you the very best.
