Pictorial Cancellation to be Held November 15th
Posted: November 2, 2005
Special One-Day Pictorial Cancellation
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Town Hall Conference Room
In conjunction with the United States Postal Service, town hall will be transformed into a temporary postal station on Tuesday, November 15th and offering a special one-day, pictorial cancellation to commemorate Randolph’s bicentennial.
What exactly is a cancellation? A cancellation is what the post office stamps a stamp with to indicate it has been through the postal system. A pictorial cancellation is a commemorative cancellation, one designed to note an event, anniversary or other occasion.
On the day of the cancellation, those interested in obtaining the special cancellation in commemoration of Randolph’s 200th birthday can bring envelopes or postcards to the temporary postal station located in the conference room at town hall. Better yet, leave the envelopes and postcards at home and instead, purchase a special envelope designed for the occasion and offered for sale by the Randolph Senior Citizens Club. Each special envelope will be hand-cancelled and sold for $5.00, with the proceeds going to the club.
Randolph High School graphic arts students from Mr. Jim King’s class helped with the final design of the one-of-a-kind cancellation mark. Special thanks to Mount Freedom Postmaster Brenda Johnson for her efforts in making this event a possibility.
Don’t miss out!
This cancellation stamp is used for one day
only and then it is put away forever!
