Announcing . . . The CPRV Registered Collections Program

This month the committee is pleased to announce the availability of a needed service, often discussed among QSL seekers: an easy way to insure that your QSLs do not get tossed out with the trash when you are no longer around to take care of them.

It's the CPRV Registered Collections Program and it works like this. CPRV will supply you with stickers to place on your QSL-albums or wherever else you like to keep your QSLs. The stickers contain the Committee's permanent post office box number, and a statement that you wish your QSLs to be donated to the Committee when you are no longer able to enjoy them. This is not a "legal" donation (which would require a will), nor is it irrevocable (you can change your mind at any time just by removing the stickers). Rather, it is an indication to family and friends of what you would like done with your QSLs when the time comes. Your family takes it from there.

The stickers are professionally printed, blue on white. They cost 50¢ each, and you can get as many as you'd like. For a registration form and more detailed information, send a business size SASE to: CPRV Registered Collections Program, John C. Herkimer, Program Coordinator, P.O. Box 54, Caledonia, NY 14423.

The Committee has found many instances of major collections being lost or discarded because family and friends didn't know what to do with them or had no interest. Don't take that risk. Protect your investment in your QSLs by contacting John Herkimer.
