Hawaii Statehood Stamp by Herb Kane

1248169403_752732bTomorrow marks 50 years of Statehood for Hawaii.

To celebrate, the Postal Service (the actual Postal Service, not the band) will issue this new commemorative stamp to all post offices nationwide starting Friday, August 21.

The stamp, which features a longboard surfer and canoe paddlers will be available for purchase at the Hawaii Convention Center during the Hawaii Statehood Conference.

At 10:15am Hawaii time, Daryl Ishizaki, USPS Honolulu District Manager, and Governor Linda Lingle will display an oversized image of the stamp at the Convention Center and introduce it to the world.

This will be available at all Post Office locations and at the Convention Center.
