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 36th 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 2022 did not turn out the way everyone in the world had expected. All of us remain optimistic for the year 2023. We are all looking forward to someday being able to go back to a more normal life.
Our 2023 club pin features a White American Pelican. Membership dues continue to be only $20.00. With your membership dues, you will receive one free 2023 club pin. Only 100 pins were made which makes for a very limited production. We are very close to selling out of these club pins. 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 2023 WPCC membership list. The pin club continues to produce a monthly newsletter which is emailed to all pin club members. I wish all of you the very best.
