The 2016 American First Day Cover Society convention (Americover) was held in Falls Church VA this past August. Weisz Covers had a table and I was honored at the Sunday morning general membership meeting to receive the Philip H Ward Memorial Award for excellence in first day cover literature. The award was for my work “Dorothy Knapp: Philately and Family”. Presented to me by Bob Lewin whose speech was quite moving. I was not expecting the accolades I have received for this book and it was not my purpose. It is so very gratifying, however, to be acknowledged for your contributions. I would like to thank the AFDCS for this honor.
