South County Gets Its Very Own Stamp

Seal your mail with the new Point Judith Lighthouse stamp

Posted

Whether you are a stamp collector or just someone who appreciates historical landmarks, the Narragansett Historical Society is celebrating its unveiling of the Point Judith Lighthouse stamp as part of the New England Lights stamp series. The stamp is issued as a se-tenant (it's a stamp collecting term – we looked it up) of five different stamps per sheet of twenty. Also, a special strip of five point Judith lighthouse stamps has been created just for the Rhode Island market. This is the first time since September 5, 1940 that a philatelic (again, we looked it up) event like this has happened in Narragansett. The stamps were unveiled July 13, and are now available at any local U.S postal office. Don’t forget to check out the featured Point Judith Lighthouse post cards that are also available. These stamps and postcards are a true commemoration of the rich history and culture that South County brings to New England. So, this summer when you’re writing to relatives about the great times had in South County, don’t forget to seal it off with a signature Point Judith stamp.
