Seattle Philatelic Exhibition - Seapex 2022
2022 September 9, 10, 11
SEAPEX 2022 is coming up!

Friday to Sunday, September 9-11 at the Tukwila Community Center, just South of Seattle.
12424 - 42nd Avenue South
Tukwila, Washington 98168



IMPORTANT!

The bridge over the Duwamish River that one would normally cross to get to the Tukwila Community Center was damaged last Winter and is now restricted to one-way traffic South, *away* from the TCC.

We recommend taking I-5 Exit 158, driving West on S Boeing Access Road, making a *sharp* left onto East Marginal Way, then left again at South 115th Street. Continue as that becomes 42nd Ave S, which will bring you to the Tukwila Community Center. See the green path on the map.

I love the dates on the souvenir card. The stamp says "Klondike Gold Rush 1898" yet under the stamp it says "1897 Klondike Gold Rush"?

The Seattle connection is that on July 17, 1897, the steamer Portland arrived in Seattle, carrying a "ton of gold."
