The field of deltiology has a loyal following-but what is it? The term – the study and collecting of picture postcards – was coined in 1945. Learn local deltiologists’ secrets. Why do they collect, What are they looking for, and Where do they find the postcards they collect? After the program, help keep the art of postcard writing alive by sending a message to someone special on a complimentary stamped postcard and maybe catch the deltiological bug yourself!  Presented by Reba-Jean Shaw-Pichette, Shelburne Historical Society, and Sheila Damkoehler, Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, in conjunction with the “Time of My Life” postcard exhibit in the Great Hall.
