Happy Mother’s Day..


Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child. Most countries including US, Australia, Canada and India celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May. Mothers Day came into being due to the efforts made by Ms Julia Ward Howe and Ms Anna Jarvis. The Resolution for having a dedicated Mother's Day was signed by US President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. Since then people across the world have been celebrating Mothers Day with joy and devotion.


There is no velvet so soft as a mother’s lap,
no rose as lovely as her smile,
no path so flowery as that imprinted with her footsteps.


A mother understands what a child does not say.

You are in me….

YPLF Fellow James Chenevert's Stamp Exhibit Wins Grand Award


Last August, James Chenevert (above center), Melissa Stanton (above left) and Jimmy Tian (above right) began their year-long projects as part of their involvement in the inaugural year of the American Philatelic Society's Young Philatelic Leaders Fellowship. These three YPLF Fellows are each working on different projects related to a specific track within the Fellowship. Due to the generous support of the United States Stamp Society, Melissa Stanton is the 2009-2010 United States Stamp Society YPLF Fellow.

Over this past weekend, YPLF Fellow James Chenevert entered his exhibit Security Features of United States Postage Stamps 1974-2009 into competition at the World Series of Philately Stamp Show in Boxborough, Massachusetts. It was less than nine months ago that James began his year-long Fellowship and selected the Exhibitor Track. Under the guidance of his YPLF Mentor, Jeffrey Shapiro, James collected the necessary material, conducted research, designed his pages, mounted the exhibit and entered it into competition.

Heartiest congratulations to James on winning a Gold Medal and the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors ("AAPE") Youth Grand Award for his exhibit at the Boxborough WSP Show. This was the first time James had competitively shown this exhibit.
