Over the years Thurman Moore has collected partial contact information from 5 to 6 thousand 1/4ers and families. Some former 1/4ers who know about our association wish to keep active contact, some do not. Some who would like contact do not know of our association. Our association can and has provided beneficial contact to many 1/4ers and families during both good and hard times.
1. Accurate count of our members, Life, Annual, and Associate is not currently possible; contact or status changes with many has not been updated. Some of that can change. We’re asking your help to update our lists and learn the whereabouts of lost members. For example, we’ve had some members pass and have not sent convalescence to widows and families. Kirk Hauser will manage updated information and work with Thurman to make updated information available on the 1/4 website under the heading “Finding Lost Members”. Contact Kirk at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 706 Harmon Urbana, Il 61801 or (773) 317-6179.
2. In March 2016 139 new Life Membership cards were printed with the names recorded on our roster at that time. Since then new member’s names had to be stamped on one by one. Some new members’ cards were dispensed in Sturbridge or by mail. A better stamping system showing names is now available. Please contact Kirk regarding any Life Membership card issues.
If I do the work of collecting correspondence from our members updating the status of lost members maybe I could provide that info to you and you could list that updated info on our website for all to see. But again, I don’t know how you might want to use other headings/message board/etc to display this information.
New Life Membership cards are available. The Membership Chairman, Kirk Hauser, ask that each of you send a self-addresses envelope to him at the below address.
