Lamoureux, who has been serving as the group’s president since 1982, said the club started in 1982 with a focus on stamps, but due to demand from members, it expanded into numismatics in 1990. The club, which has about 50 members, regularly meets between September and June and holds an annual auction in March.

“The pleasure of our club is the diversity of interests in philately and numismatic,” Lamoureux told CCN.
