Today, October 28, 2020, we had the honour of presenting the Gib Stevens Memorial Award. The receipient of this award has gone above and beyond for our club. Membership in the club goes back over 25 years. This member has been president on several occasions, exhibits and encourages others to do so, has been show chair and worked tirelessly on the show team, with set-up and take-down for many years. He has also helped other clubs with this task. This member gives presentations and is always thinking about the higher good of club, even in trying circumstances. He repairs exhibit frames and stands, looks after their storage, is our club auctioineer, and represented Oxford at the Grand Valley meetings. With all you have given to the club, it could have been called "Jim's Club", but, something you didn't want. Jim Watson, we are priviledged to present you with Gib Stevens Memorial Award and you now also a life member of the Oxford Philatelic Society. Congratulations Jim!
