Guests are always welcome at Monthly Member Meetings. They are held at the Oregon Stamp Society building at 4828 NE 33rd Avenue, between Prescott and Alberta Streets in Portland, on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm. The building is open at 7:00, so you can come early to socialize. Please remember that the fourth Wednesday of the month is not necessarily the last Wednesday.

Please note that we do not have regular Monthly Member Meetings during the months of November and December, due to conflicts with the holidays.

We will have a meeting room in the back that is close to the bar and rest rooms.  We can order off the menu and drinks can be obtained in the bar.

As in the past there will be a gift exchange.  If you would like to participate, please bring a gift for another person in your category (man or woman) and mark the gift accordingly.  Suggested maximum value is $5.97.  Of course, we ask you to decline a gift if you don’t bring one to exchange.
