Joe Crosby will be presenting at TEXPEX later this month. His talk, which will be of great interest to those of us in Oklahoma, is scheduled for 1 PM on Friday, February 24th.
His talk centers around what he calls “Postal History Across The Red River”.
He will show 3 different very intriguing covers mailed by people living in Texas – just across the Red River – who used Oklahoma Post Offices for reasons he will explain.
16 members of our club will also enter a page each in the annual “Club Competition”.
