WESTPEX 2013 Grand Opening Day Ceremony
Show Theme and Souvenirs
A special Grand Opening Ceremony for the WESTPEX 2013 Stamp Show will be held at 9:30 A.M. Friday April 26 in the Irvine Room of the Jr. Ballroom on the hotel's first floor. The ceremony will describe the WESTPEX 2013 theme, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Hetch Hetchy water project that supplies water and electricity to the San Francisco Bay Area.
Three cachet envelopes as shown here and a Cinderella souvenir sheet will be available at the show. Every attendee to this ceremony will receive one free cachet cover at the end of the program. Bill Dwyer, the cachet designer, will be on hand to autograph covers if desired.
To access the Jr. Ballroom, one may use the Bay View walkway outside the first floor lounge area. From the second floor, one may go down the stairs opposite and just past the registration counter. Follow the posted signs.
The three rooms of the Jr. Ballroom area as well as the lobby will feature meetings and specialty group tables during the show, and the WESTPEX Awards Banquet on Saturday evening April 27.
Once the show opens, the cachet covers will be on sale on the second floor adjacent to the registration area. Single cachet covers are $4 each or all three versions for $10. The Hetch Hetchy souvenir sheets will also be available for $5 each.
