FSCC 10th year

This is the official first day cover for the 10th year of Filipinas Stamp Collectors' Club issue, an overprinted souvenir sheet. (There are at least two distinct shades of the souvenir sheet.)

FSCC had its beginnings in October 1994 with only five stamp collectors around. 

Then known as the Manila Stamp Collectors' Club, its first meeting was held on January 15, 1995 at a fastfood restaurant.

"Manpex '98" was the club's first exhibition held in April 1998.  
In 1999 (or was it in 2000?), the club's name changed to the present one.

One of the five founding members is Josefina T. Cura, still active in philately all these years!
