Stamp, envelope issued for Deltaville Centennial
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the community of Deltaville, the Deltaville Community Association (DCA) will sell a special commemorative envelope on July 4th during Heritage Day.
The envelope has been printed with a design recognizing the DCA. Also on the envelope is a photo stamp of the Deltaville deadrise “Bay Raider” built by Willard Norris.
On July 4th, Patty Hall, the Deltaville postmaster, will cancel this genuine postal stamp using a pictorial cancellation that commemorates Heritage Day and the date “July 4, 2009.” The envelopes will be sold on July 4th for $5. Sheets of 20 of the Deltaville deadrise photo stamps also will be sold for $30 a sheet. The special 100th anniversary cancellation can be used up to 30 days after the event. The DCA will take orders after July 4th and sell the stamps and envelopes until their stock is depleted.
