“The spiritual inspiration which man derives from knowledge of Masonry and the material pleasure which he finds in philately, open limitless vistas to him. It was with this thought in mind that the founders proceeded to organize a purely social group where Masons can come together to enjoy their favorite hobby and study Masonry through philately. As long as the Chapter continues to serve this purpose, it will prosper.”
The George Washington Masonic Stamp Club was formally organized in the fall of 1956 as The George Washington Chapter No. 1 of the Masonic Stamp Club of New York. The membership of the Chapter approved a new constitution and by-laws in 1960 which recognized their independence due to administrative problems. As a result the George Washington Masonic Stamp Club (GWMSC) was constituted as a separate entity. Both the George Washington Masonic Stamp Club and the Masonic Stamp Club of New York (MSCNY) still exist separately, and have many dual members.
We meet at the George Washington National Masonic Memorial building on "Shooter's Hill", 101 Callahan Drive, Alexandria, VA 703-683-2007 in Alexandria Va., every February on the Sunday closest to George Washington's Birthday.
