Philatelists produce souvenir envelopes

The Southern Oregon Philatelic Society will produce two souvenir envelopes to honor the 2013 Pear Blossom Festival and the Sparta Building in Medford, which turns 100 this year.

The design on the envelopes shows a wooden gate with a grapevine and bucket of pears leading to a pear orchard.

The same historical series of envelopes dates back to the 1970s and honors significant people, buildings or locales in the Rogue Valley. The envelopes can be ordered at $1.50 apiece from: 1090 Shafter Lane, Medford, OR, 97501. Enclose a No. 10 self-addressed stamped envelope to receive your order.
