The Lawrence Stamp Club is an extremely friendly and knowledgeable group. I first attended as a visitor a couple of years ago and was quickly welcomed and became a member! If you've got even the slightest interest in philately attending a club meeting is a MUST. The yearly dues are only $5. Activities include 4 member auctions per year (my favorite night), presentations by members, bourse nights, open forums, and slide show presentations from the American Topical Association.
