Visitors will be seeing all original and never before seen Rizal stamps, artworks, love letters and other memorabilia of our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. The exhibit will present, in chronological order, the old and latest issues in limited copies of the stamps with introductory texts.
The exhibit will run until July 03, 2015. A minimal entrance fee of P10 will be charged to visitors. It shall be used to help in the renovation of the Gabaldon school building at Luis Palad National High School.
PHLPost also encourages the students and the viewing public to participate in Philately or stamp collecting by joining the Philatelic Youth Club. A starter kit, complete with application form, mini album, ID and P10 worth of stamps shall be available to those who will join the stamp club.
Meanwhile, the public will have the chance to try using the Personalized Stamps to be installed at the exhibit area. They can now create their own photo stamps which can be used not only as a gift or souvenir but also to mail letters.
