Stamps needed for mini event
Board: Stamp Swap

Hello my fellow letterboxes!! I am in need of some stamps for a mini event in the works for the middle of July (yes, next month). There is no theme to the event and the stamps can be of anything at all. I don't care about the size either -- I will accept anything. If you have a retired stamp or old P.T. just lying around, I can use it!! My goal is to have at least 1 stamp from every state. If you can help me out with a stamp or two or know someone who can, please email me the details. All stamps will be promptly returned unless you would like them planted here in South-Central Ohio. Thanks everyone!!

I see on your event page to bring black ink. The stamps I am sending should be inked up in color.

Just let me know so I can mark Wisconsin off my list.
So far I have commitments from Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Vermont.
I've got a long way to go.

Hi p pack,

Have you thought about posting on the Stamp Exchange board? It seems as if that is where most people requesting stamps for events post. You may want to try that also to get a few more stamps from other locations.

Dozier School for Boys
Board: Stamp Swap
Jul 17, 2019 3:42pm
Thread
Get a hanky ready and read up:

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article231763513.html

There are zillions of other articles online; just do a Google search for "Dozier School for Boys".

To summarize: The Dozier School for Boys was where boys were sent when somebody didn't want to deal with them any more, and a great many of them were brutally murdered and never heard from again. Over the past few years, the official cemetery there was dug up and the remains studied to try to identify the lost children. Now it appears there may be more gravesites hidden elsewhere around the property, so another investigation is soon to begin.

The site is in Marianna, Florida. This is a couple of hours' drive from me, and it'd probably be a lousy place to plant anyway since there is an investigation going on. However, the remains that were exhumed during the first investigation have now been reinterred in a cemetery in Tallahassee -- just down the road from me! We drive past that cemetery regularly.

I have no idea what sort of stamp image would be appropriate, if any. If anyone has any ideas, let's talk about it. Perhaps someone can carve something suitably respectful and send it to me, and I can plant it.

When and if the investigations end for good, we can talk about planting something at the site in Marianna. It's a drive for me, but I'm still perhaps the closest active letterboxer.

That's really tragic and so sad. The only thing that came to mind immediately was the little poem we used to say as kids, a LONG time ago - "little boys are made of nails, and snails, and puppy dog tails". I know such gender-specific cliches are no longer considered 'politically correct'. But I still think some things traditionally associated with little boys would be a sweet and respectful tribute to the childhood they missed out on. I'm thinking a bicycle, a basketball or baseball & bat, a dog, a fishing pole (with a fish held up by a little boy) and so on, give them the innocent joys of days long ago, that they never got to experience.

My thoughts were similar - focus on what these lives that were cut short could have contained if these boys were only given a chance. When you have settled on a theme I would be happy to contribute - I may be in CT, but have followed the story for a number of years.

Looking for Myth and Legend stamps
Board: Stamp Swap

The theme for the Fourth Annual Letterboxers Egg Hunt is Myth and Legend! Any and all stamps that fit into that category are welcome.

I have set up this tracker to keep track of donations. All stamps will be returned to their owners after the event. I'd like to get all the stamps in by March 15 2020.

Thank you for your consideration!

However you would like to do it. No preconceived notions of what the carver would like to create. For example, for fast food place-a McDonald's or Burger King logo would be fine or any thing that represents fast food for you would be great. Let yourself go!

Aug 30, 2019 4:56am
Hi all - We're almost three quarters of the way through 2019, and this is the time I start thinking of the Year in Review event over the New Year Weekend.

We love having stamps come from all different carvers! So if you are able, we would appreciate the help.

Here are the Trackers for the event:
In Memoriam 2019
2019 News and Current Events
2019 Pop Culture, Trends and Entertainment
Sports 2019
My 2019

Stamps for this event will not be returned, instead they will be transitioned into a Time Capsule Event Box that can travel to events if requested.

Thanks for any help!
