Ukrainian Philatelic and Numismatic Society

Promoting Ukrainian stamps, coins and other collectibles

UPNS Stamp Meet "Zustrich 2017" - May 5-7

Mark your calendars! "ZUSTRICH 2017" is being held on Saturday, the 6th of May at the Ukrainian Homestead just outside Lehighton, PA. A few members arrive Friday after 6pm to catch up with friends and rest after a long trip.

Although the resort is busy during the summer with many planned functions, this weekend is ours to enjoy.  Zustrich is an annual reunion for many familiar faces in a very informal setting and for first timers an opportunity to make new friendships.  A few of our members are even accompanied by their wives who enjoy meeting the other philatelists!  The resort grounds are wonderful for walking around during spring while the great tourist town of Jim Thorpe is just a few miles away and is a great place to see.

Saturday is especially active with brisk buying, trading, and selling of items between collectors and a few dealers.  It is a time for collectors of Ukrainian collectibles to come together, and talk shop. You never know what treasures you may find, anything from stamps, paper money, coins, medals (on occasion), postcards, and more.

This year we will hold the 4th annual “Silent Auction” which everyone enjoyed last year.  Bring along all your extra material to enter in the auction or just grab a table.  Someone will be definitely be interested in it.

Rooms are available on a first come basis at very inexpensive rates.  A buffet style breakfast is served Saturday morning, an afternoon Ukrainian style lunch and a dinner later in the day.  Meals are pay as you go and no one is left hungry.   Unfortunately the bar at the Homestead will be closed this year so everyone is invited to bring their own refreshment.

For those who wish to stay overnight both Friday and Saturday nights, you will need to make a reservation by calling LESIA STECYNA ( at 215-740-1609 (cell) or call the Resort directly at 610-377-4621 weekends only.

As there are a limited number of rooms, please do not wait until the last minute to make your reservation. Double bed rooms are $70 per night, single bed rooms are $55 per night.  The resort ends up being fully booked with Society members arriving from eastern parts of the US and also Canada.
