Our biggest cost is mailing. Our club spends an average of $750 on postage and packing peanuts each year to mail 50+ pieces of glass to our members. We are fortunate that we can use free USPS mailing boxes to send most of the gifts. During the year, we also mail each member a birthday card plus a printed picture pamphlet (donated by Carnival Glass Clubs and their members throughout the year). To each new member of the club we mail a Carnival Glass Encyclopedia and a binder of educational materials.
Since we do not want to raise the membership fee of $10 to the members, you can see how important your continuing support is to us.
