Choose Life applications delivered to the RMV today!
We finally made the trip into the registry to deliver over 1700 Choose Life applications to the manager of special plates. It has been a long 7 years working on this project and we could not have done it without you. Thank you for all your help, your prayers, your kind words and encouragement, especially when we were so tired of trying we were considering giving up. We are so glad that we didn't
So what happens next? The registry will begin processing all the applications and having the plates manufactured. The estimated time for the plates to be complete is 8 - 12 weeks. The registry will notify those that reserved a plate when they have been shipped to that branch. In the following months, the registry will manufacture 500 plates per month until they reach 5,000 plates total. These will be distributed to stock the branches. I need to clarify this but I take this to mean the people who did not register with me may have to wait one month to go to the RMV to pick up a plate.
I will continue to update the web site as events occur. In the mean time, I am researching how we will be distribute the funds and how we will keep people informed of the good work this plate is doing. We will be organizing parish drives to reach or quota of 3000 plates. Oh, and I see a celebration sometime in May at a certain Tavern in Lancaster with many Choose Life license plates parked in the yard.
