Oklahoma Postal History Meeting Tuesday 2-13-2018

The Oklahoma Postal History Society will meet this Tuesday at 7:00 PM at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, NW 15th and Harvey.

The program is the Postal  History of McCurtain County, presented by Norm Pence.   Norm says if you have any postal marking

from any of the small towns in McCurtain County, He would love to see them.    There are about 75 towns and Norm has less than half.    SO DIG OUT THOSE little, short-lived McCurtain post offices.

As usual, some of us will meet at 6 PM at Louie’s Midtown for dinner at 6PM before the meeting and all are welcome.  All you have to be is hungry and love to eat.

OPHS Meeting Tuesday – January 9, 2018

Here is the plan for this  Tuesday evening at OPHS.

Don Purdum will lead a discussion of Military Bases in Oklahoma e.g. Naval Training, Army/Air Force Pilot Training & WWII POW and Internment Camp Mail.

So Dig out all those Oklahoma Military Bases, WWI, WWII, POW and Internment Camp covers and cards.    I am sure Don will have some neat stuff to show and tell himself.

Norm Pence will not be able to attend due to illness in his family.

See you at Louie’s Midtown at 6 PM and at St. Luke’s Methodist Church at 7 PM.
