    The 131st annual March Party of the Cleveland-based Garfield-Perry Stamp Club is going ahead as planned.

    Club members are making plans for the Ohio's largest stamp show April 9-11, but with some changes from the traditionally popular event.

    Show co-chairman Rocco Caponi said 34 dealers will be on hand for the bourse-only show. Because of the coronavirus pandemic no exhibits will be on display for showgoers to enjoy.

    In line with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Ohio public health guidelines, all attendees will be required to wear a mask. And all people will have their temperature checked before entry. Anyone with a temperature above 101 Fahrenheit will not be admitted.

    Each visitor also will be required to sign a waiver confirming that he or she does not have COVID-19 symptoms and agreeing that they will not hold the club or others liable should the virus be contracted at the show. In addition, each person will be asked for contact information that can be used to notify all attendees should a confirmed COVID-19 case occur.

    Caponi said the requirements are designed to protect everyone who participates in the March Party. The event is at the Strongsville Holiday Inn, 15471 Royalton Rd., in suburban Strongsville, Ohio. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

    We are closely monitoring things in advance of making a decision in late March whether we can hold the show on-site in Chicago. Currently Illinois is in tier one (tightest) Covid restrictions. It must be tier three for our show to be held there. If we have to cancel, we will again be offering virtual meetings and programs.
