If anyone knows the answer to the question posed, they are asked to kindly send in the information to the Sooke News Mirror and we will print the answer once we receive it.

“I am not a stamp collector but I have been collecting stamps with the idea that some organization can use them for fundraising. Over Christmas, I got a few more from overseas and, of course, Canadian stamps. Now, I don’t know what organization in Sooke can use the stamps or who to contact. Also, what is the best way to remove stamps from envelopes to get maximum value for the stamps?”
