Meetings for 2023

Meetings are held at the Mt. Albert Senior Citizens' Hall, Wairere Avenue, Mt. Albert, Auckland, on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from February to November. At each meeting there is a sale table, a raffle and "items of interest" are displayed. A guest speaker and display are the main event of most meetings. The night wraps up with a mini Red Dot Sale. Visitors and new members are welcome. Doors open at 7:30 pm, and meetings start at 8:00 pm.

Red Dot Sales are at the same venue on 4 Saturdays during the year - doors open at 12 noon and the sale gets underway at 1 pm.

The APS Annual Exhibition is at the Mt Albert War Memorial Hall, Wairere Avenue, from 10 am to 3.30 pm.

The final event of the year is the Christmas Party on the first Tuesday of December. There is live music, food, fun and a Prizegiving, and local stamp clubs are invited to come and celebrate with us. Bring a plate to share.
