Stamp exhibit @ Dr. Robert Silliman Library

The Dumaguete Stamp Collectors Club is an organization of philatelic enthusiasts coming from Dumaguete and its neighboring towns. From a loose organization of friends who started meeting in July 2009, the group formally organized the Club on December 1, 2009 with the signing of its By-Laws by the founding members: Gary Rosales, Allan Uy Matiao, Mimi Caro, Aidalyn Arabe, Lito Diago, Richard Rauscher and Penn Larena. On the same date, the Club opened its first non-competitive exhibit at the Colegio de Sta. Catalina which was then celebrating its 50th Foundation Day. The next month, another non-competitive exhibit was held at Foundation University Museo de Vicente during the 60th year of the school.

The Club aims to promote the advancement of stamp collecting as a means of strengthening love of country and fostering international understanding and friendship. Members are given opportunities to display their stamp collections in non-competitive and competitive exhibitions.

The Silliman University together with Silliman University Cultural Affairs Committee, August 21-28, 2010 exhibit entitled Nature, Culture, and History Through Stamps: An Exhibition will feature Philippine stamps from the Spanish Dominion, American and Japanese Occupations, Commonwealth and Republic periods as well as those coming from different countries the world over.
