Club History

In January of 1956, Mr. Bill McFarlane meet with Ms. Kathryn Lamb, of Kitchener, Ontario, and of Mr. Eric Rushton, of the Canadian Philatelic Society. Knowing a number of local individuals with a keen interest in stamp collecting, the group concluded that there was more than enough interest to form a stamp club. Twenty five year prior there had been a viable stamp club in the Peterborough area, however aside from some correspondence with the Canadian Philatelic Society, little is known of the earlier club history.

For all intents and purposes, the origin date of the 'Kawartha Stamp Club' is February 28, 1956. In September 2015 the Kawartha Stamp Club joined the Greater Toronto Area Philatelic Alliance in order to support stamp collecting in the Greater Toronto region.
