Pitogo plant was featured in this March 2019 calendar

The calendar/ postcards was launched during the Christmas get-together by the group last December 8, 2018.

The postcard portion can be detached and send to postcard/ stamp collectors from all over the world.

Some postcard and stamp collectors told the author that they should be given advance notices so that they could pre-order in advance. ( Sorry, I was also informed at the last minute.)

This is not the first time that the society had printed this type of calendar/ postcard. It is good that they listen to my suggestion as one of the original founding member and officer of the society-  More than 10 years ago!.
