The Plymouth, VT, Post Office is offering a special stamp cancellation to mark the town’s 2012 Annual Coolidge Holiday Open House.
A unique pictorial postmark which reads “Holiday Station, Plymouth, VT 05056, Dec. 9, 2012” is designed by John Lutz, a local artist who has designed this postmark for over 10 years.
The special cancellation is a wonderful way to take home an inexpensive souvenir of this celebration and will appeal to stamp collectors and others from all over New England.
By request it will be applied free of charge to postcards and letters bearing postage on Sunday, Dec. 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the Florence Cilley General Store at the old Plymouth Post Office. The event is sponsored by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation. Admission is free.
Customers can also request the special postmark free-of-charge by mail for 30 days after the event by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope containing the letter or envelope they wish to be cancelled to: Postmaster, 236 Coolidge Memorial Drive, Plymouth, VT 05056-9998.
“We will be happy to cancel and return by mail any letters that our customers mail in,” said PMR Melissa Lynds. “Customers may also bring in their own stamped envelopes to obtain a postmark that they can take home as a keepsake.”
