Webster Groves Stamp Club

The Webster Grove Stamp Club is one of the oldest stamp clubs in the St. Louis, MO metropolitan area. It was founded in 1928. There are about 75 members.

We meet the 1st and 3rd Friday evenings each month at 8:00 PM at the First Congregational Church, 10 West Lockwood (parking access from Gore). See maps

Each meeting consists of an auction and a presentation by a member or invited guest. In the course of a year, there is something that appeals to everyone. 

Of the various clubs in the St. Louis area, Webster Groves attracts the most advanced collectors.

During COVID-19 Lockdowns

While the current emergency exists, meetings are conducted on Zoom at the regularly scheduled time. Paid members get an email with the specific meeting password.

From First Congregational Church:

All group activities using the church’s internal facilities have been put on hold until the county COVID curves show significant calming. As of 15 October 2020, the curve trajectory was heading upwards again.
