San Pablo City’s 75th Anniversary Commemorative Stamps

Just this May, coinciding with the founding anniversary of the city of San Pablo on the 7th, two commemorative stamps were launched and officially released during a ceremony in front of the old city hall (see the PhilPost article about the event here).

Featured on the stamps are the city’s old city hall which now houses Museo de San Pablo and the famous Sampaloc Lake which both cost 10 pesos. There is also an official first day cover which you can obtain from the city’s postmaster Ms. Meanne Parfan for a minimal cost.

Through commemorations like this one, the city is introduced and re-introduced to its people. Tedious as it may seem to some people, I hope that stamp collecting would get wider attention in our city especially the younger ones.
