The West Bend Stamp Club is indeed blessed to count Mary Yahr as a member of their club. Mary joined the club about 15 years ago and almost immediately became the newsletter editor. She soon became the Secretary, and she found herself as the leader of the youth group of collectors as well.
She must be pretty good as the youth leader, because the West Bend Ben Franklin Stamp Club has 22 to 25 kids attending the meetings. She makes sure that the kids take something free home from each meeting. Her volunteer work also extends to the West Bend Art Museum and the City of West Bend has presented her an award for her volunteer work as an "Art Mom" at the museum. She recently retired as Executive Director of the West Bend Builders Association and now works in the West Bend School District as a substitute aide. It is apparent that she loves working with the kids and that bodes well for the future of the hobby in the West Bend area.
Mary has been married to Ronald for 23 years and they have three children, Tessa (17), Becca, (11), and Sara (7). All three of them are stamp collectors and they have won numerous awards for their exhibits. Hobbies include traveling, giving art talks to kids in grades K through 3 and to seniors in retirement homes, and hunting. She hunts deer, pheasant, ducks and geese, and turkeys. She was successful on her very first turkey hunt.
Mary and her family love to travel and in 2000 they attended the World Stamp Expo in California. Each day the entire family would attend the first day ceremonies and then she would work the PNC3 booth for the rest of the day while the rest of the family went off to Disneyland. This proved to be a great arrangement for the entire family. Mary has developed a stamp exchange pen pal relationship with a fellow in Ireland, and this has led to her and her family traveling to Ireland and staying at the pen pals house. In turn her pen pal came to this country and stayed at her house as well.
Mary's mother has been a stamp collector for many many years. She collected full sheets of U.S. stamps thinking that this would be a good investment. Since Mary joined the West Bend club she has found out that it "just isn't so" and has changed her mother's collecting habits. Some years ago a priest from India visited Mary's church and she struck up a conversation with him. Eventually a friendship evolved that resulted in the priest sending many stamps to her. He had a lot of foreign correspondents and thus obtained a lot of nice stamps, which he sent on to Mary.
She is a general collector and calls herself an "accumulator". She did exhibit one time and received a vermeil award for her one page exhibit "Time Out For Games". It is as the title suggests an exhibit about games. She encourages her daughters as well as the kids in her stamp club to exhibit.
One time while traveling in the car she was reading an article by Wayne Youngblood about a PNC3 stamp of which plate #6 was quite rare. She commented to Ron that she might have that stamp, so when she got home she immediately looked and sure enough she did have it.
Mary's advice to collectors is to learn as much as you can about the hobby. Then share that information with others. It is from the sharing that you get the real joy of the hobby. We send our best wishes to Mary and feel good about the future of the hobby, at least in the West Bend area. Thanks Mary.
