Welcome to the Ottawa Philatelic Society. Established in 1891,
we are Canada's oldest stamp club.
In Loving Memory
Dec 1927- Feb 2017
Long Time member of OPS
President of OPS 2006-2008
Thought I would pass along a very sad email I received tonight regarding the passing of our late friend Jack Gray. Jack moved down to Port Hope in the summer of 2013, so he did not have much time to enjoy the beautiful town of Port Hope.
Our Condolences to his wife and children and their families.
He was a big part of OPS stamp club in so many ways through the years. Including President of OPS 2006-2008
From his obituary:
"In his spare time, Jack was an avid collector, most notably of books and stamps. He considered himself a lucky man to have spent a long and happy life doing what he loved. In accordance with his wishes, there will not be a funeral; a few gatherings of friends to raise a toast and share a tale will be organized over the coming months."

Thank you to all who has put in their Application for their exhibit for ORAPEX 2017 . We again have a full slate for competitive exhibits from 1-10 frames per exhibit.
For those of you who has a one or two page exhibit, you can still be part of one of the non-competitive club frames : OPS or RA
There will be room for 15 pages per club frame.

Note to OPS members for our meeting Thursday March 9
The OPS executive met on March 2 and approved a change in time for our business meetings and Study Groups. For the period from now through May, our business meeting will start at 7:15 and Study Groups at 7:30. This change is intended to improve the timing of both events. We will review this test run in June to determine if it were a benefit to the club and to the Study Groups.
