As the nation celebrates the centennial of President John F. Kennedy’s birth, the Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History at Regis College in Weston honors our thirty-fifth president with an exhibit of stamps commemorating his life. To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, Mr. Jim Roberts, Supervisory Park Ranger/Chief of Visitor Services at John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site in Brookline, will give a free talk on Thursday, June 8 at 7:30pm. He will discuss all the efforts both in the United States and countries worldwide that have been taken to commemorate and memorialize JFK through postal stamps, cachets and other philatelic material over the past fifty years. Roberts’ talk will discuss many of the stamps in the exhibit and how they relate to Kennedy’s life plus he will outline the many activities happening all this year for the centennial anniversary. The program will begin at 7:30pm with the galleries opening at 6:30pm for viewing of the exhibit.
The exhibit, which will run until September 30, will also allow children to make their own free collection of both Kennedy stamps and stamps that have honored all our past presidents.
