PANHELLENIC SOCIETY OF THEMATIC PHILATELY & YOUTH

HISTORIC OF ITS FOUNDATION

Our club was founded in 1989 and was officially recognized with Athens court No. 683/1990 adjudication. A group of known philatelists from Athens and other parts of Greece, although not thematic philatelists in their majority, having discerned the absence of a pure thematic club in Greece, took the decision and initiative for its establishment.
Charter members were 27.

A provisional council was elected on December 16, 1989.
In October 1990 the first number of bulletin of the club was issued.
The elections for the first board members, because of various problems and difficulties,
were late to be accomplished. It was realized on April 11, 1993.
