Valentine Trip 2024

Colonial Corvette Members:


It is time once again for our annual trip to the Valentine's Post Office. I just wanted to send out the information about our trip on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2024, to the Valentine's Post Office to get everyone's Valentine cards stamped with the special Valentine post mark.

We will be leaving the WAWA @ 6446 Richmond Road, Williamsburg, VA 23188 @ 8:30 a.m. sharp. I have attached our trip route so that you can print it out and / or  put it in your gps, if you like or it is also at the bottom of this page.. Purchase your Valentine cards and bring them with you to mail. Also, if you have any friends that you want  to bring their cards, please do. They will sure be appreciative.


Remember to purchase your stamps at the Post Office as this is a very small Post Office and this is part of their yearly revenue.


Thanks and let me know if you are interested in going.

Thanks, Walter Williams  757-871-2122
