Graebner Chapter #17 Donation

One of the most active groups within the American First Day Cover Society, the Robert C. Graebner Chapter #17, has made a $500 contribution to Boston 2026 World Expo.

Their Secretary-Treasurer, Foster Miller, sent a message on behalf of their membership saying, “We hope that other stamp clubs will show their support for Boston 2026 and that first day covers will be an integral part of the show.”

Chapter #17 originally formed in 1973 as the “National Capital Area Chapter of the AFDCS,” later renaming themselves after the founder of the group on his death in August, 1974.

They continue to meet today at the Manning Center of the Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church off Chevy Chase Circle in Washington, DC on the second Saturday of each month at 10 AM. All are welcome. Their web site is at
