Sergio Lugo presents the first installment of $2,500 donated to the YPLF Program and the Stamps Teach Program by two Colorado based APS affiliates. The Cherrelyn Stamp Club of Englewood, Colorado allocated $250 each to both programs, and as a member Sergio took the opportunity while in Bellefonte to present the checks. The second installment, of $1,000 to each program, was conditionally suggested by Sergio as the President of the Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library (RMPL), pending the RMPL Board's meeting of November 21st. The RMPL Board voted unanimously to approve the donation that evening, with the checks to be forwarded in early 2014. Both the Cherrelyn Stamp Club and the RMPL wish both programs continued success in promoting their respective activities and securing the requisite funds to continue that promotion.
