All the Journals were mailed the same day. Each post office that it passes
through is supposed to hold it for no more than 2 weeks (the old bulk mail it

All the Journals were mailed by December 6. Since it is supposed to take 1/3

in Peoria, IL, where it took the full 6 weeks for everyone in that same zip
code to get their copy.
I know it is easy to say, but tough to do; however, I would wait until the
end of January before I contacted Cindy for a replacement copy. And yes,
Cindy is the person to contact. In the Spring we only experienced 2 lost

received over 300+ renewals already) 6 people have mailed there renewals to
If anyone is from the Kansas City area and knows Thomas Coen, a life member,
let him know to contact Cindy. His Journal was returned "Delivery attempted,
addressee not at this address." It is the same address we have mailed it to
for several years with no problem? Our only guess is that he may have passed
If anyone is wondering why they aren't sent 1st class is that it would cost
nearly $4 more per member.
