In the good company of local collectors and partners, Åland Post celebrated its 25th anniversary as an independent postal administration on 7 November. The canteen at the postal terminal was full of guests who, in a genial and festive atmosphere, enjoyed the two highlights of the evening, the presentation of the 2019 Åland stamp issuing program and the special cancellation.
Henrik Lundberg, CEO of Åland Post, welcomed the guests with a toast and opened the evening with a broad summary of the first 25 years of Åland Post’s existence. He was followed by director Eivor Granberg who revealed the 2019 stamp issues.
A lovely painting by visual artist Carolina Sundelin was raffled off this evening. Carolina makes her debut in 2019 as stamp artist for Åland Post with four colourful postal stationery cards on a crayfish party theme. The cards appear on 9 May 2019.
The guests made sure to acquire the unique special cancellation ‘Åland Post 25 years’ and to look at the exhibition of the 2019 stamp sketches and originals.
