To do this we need to collect at least 3000 cards. Participation is easy. Simply write out a card thanking our troops for their service, put it into a stamped envelope and add your return address. We will add the addressee. You can bring the card(s) to the Romeo Masonic Temple "Gray's Block Romeo Village Opera House on Feb 7 and on Feb 14th. On Feb 14th we will start the stamp cancellations and attempt to break the record. The Romeo Post Office will be on hand at the Temple to hand cancel each and every card with a special cancellation that says "From Romeo with Love" The Post Office will also have on hand cards and stamps for purchase on both the 7th and 14th at the Romeo Masonic Temple.
