A holiday party is held in December and a picnic (indoors or outdoors) is held in May. Members are encouraged to bring guests.
The WNYPC is a social club, organized for the dissemination of knowledge and news relating to the collecting of picture postcards. The club promotes, develops and encourages this enjoyable hobby. It fosters a spirit of fellowship and cooperation among other clubs and collectors. The club welcomes you as a dealer, collector or enthusiast.
Officers are elected for two year terms in December of odd numbered years, after a nominating committee has presented a slate of candidates in November. Committee chairs are filled on a voluntary basis with no set term, as is the position of Editor of the club’s newsletter, the Bulletin. The Bulletin is published three times per year, according to the seasons, and is mailed to each member address, one copy per address. The Winter Bulleting typically includes the complete membership roster. The club has a website and an opt-in email list.
