BOPEX 2006 of the Bohol Philatelic Society --

Here's an extract from the article about the history of the BPS:

"BOHOL Philatelic Society started upon the urging of Postal Regional Director Fabiolita Ferrareis, and the initiative of Vic Oclarit, Tagbilaran City Main Post Office post master. On September 20,1996 , the BPS was born. Composed of top business leaders and professionals in government and private sector, the BPS soon stuck to the edge in the philatelic scene in the region. Upon its organization, Richard Allan Uy, Philpost 7 Philatelic Adviser and President of Cebu Stamp Club, Inc. together with Rachel Betos, Postal Region 7 Market Specialist conducted a brief seminar – lecture on philately to the newly elected officers and members of the organized stamps club. The seminar taught enthusiasts how to mount an award winning philatelic entry and invited them all to participate in the PhilPostPex '96 Grand Philatelic Exhibition of Philippines Postal Corporation, Region 7 at Cebu City. The founding officer (1996-1997) then were Atty Rosalina C. Abapo (President); Engr. Jose Mariano Tubo (VP); Luz Tambis (Secretary); Engr. Aida Crusit (Treasurer); Tracy Bitoy, CPA (Auditor); John Howell Duke MiƱosa, Adam Saligumba, and Orcisimo Ciano (PRO's); Stash Labaria (Business Manager); Lina Tan and Vic Oclarit as Adviser."
