TEMPORARILY AWAY FROM HOME/NEW ADDRESS
Are you going to be “TEMPORARILY AWAY” (maybe for the winter, an extended vacation or job demands)? More and more monthly newsletters are being returned to the Club marked as “TEMPORARILY AWAY”! When you notify the Post Office that you are going to be “TEMPORARILY AWAY” they will ONLY HOLD or FORWARD 1ST CLASS MAIL. All other mail is returned to the sender. Your monthly newsletter is mailed to you using Bulk Rate Postage. Consequently, your newsletter is returned to the Club marked POSTAGE DUE @ $ .41 which the Club has to pay to retrieve it. These newsletters cannot be forwarded, as we do not know where to send them.
Members that have “MOVED TO A NEW ADDRESS” and have not notified the Club of their NEW ADDRESS also have their newsletters returned marked POSTAGE DUE @ $ .41. The Post Office will not forward these newsletters. The Club then pays another $ .41 postage to forward it to you and updates your file to reflect your new address. Please notify the Club when you move!
