A Brief History

In March of 1974 a few enthusiastic individuals in Collingwood Ontario, got together in one of their homes and started the Collingwood Coin and Stamp Club. The membership grew over the years and ultimately had to find a more professional location in a local library.

During the early 1990’s, it was decided to have a meeting in two locations each month, once in Collingwood and once in Wasaga Beach. As time went on, the clubs name was revised to reflect the fact that it no longer was just in Collingwood. It was then called Collingwood-Georgian Bay Coin and Stamp Club. Towards the end of the 1990’s, it was also realized the majority of the membership was located in Wasaga Beach, and since the two communities were close to each other anyways, all meetings were held in Wasaga Beach, at their local library.

Early in 2003 the growing club, outgrew the library space, and needed to find a new location. The Real Canadian Superstore opened in Wasaga Beach, with a community Room, free to non-profits. At about the same time, (April 2003), it was decided to start a chapter in Midland Ontario. With that in mind, two meetings a month took place, once in Wasaga Beach and once in Midland. The Midland Chapter club also met at the Real Canadian Superstore in Midland.

It was later decided to drop the Collingwood reference to be more general in name, thus we are now known as, the “Georgian Bay Coin and Stamp Club”.

We met at the Superstore’s until 2009, when The Superstore started charging for the room at a rate we could not financially accept. We then moved the meetings to new locations, the Prime Time Club in Wasaga Beach, and the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre in Midland.

At the time of this writing (Nov. 2015) we have approx. 60 members.
