Check your E-Mail
The US Mail Service is used to send the 1st fall (September) and the 1st spring (March) meeting notices. For all other meeting notices, we will use the email address that you have provided. If you do not use email, then you will continue to receive the meeting notices by US Mail. If you have an email address and are NOT receiving these notices by email, please contact Bill Clingenpeel at (336) 288-8434 or email him at email@example.com and ask him to add your email address to our distribution list. NOTE: Please check your spam blocker to insure that you are not blocking these notices. Using the US Mail for these notices, instead of e-mailing them, costs our organization approximately 75 cents, multiplied that by 130 veterans and you have a substantial sum.

By choice, we do not have a dues structure. However, we appreciated voluntary contributions to support our operational expenses. Your BCVG supports veterans by contributing to the “Servant Center” and “Camp Corral” annually. Thanks for your gifts. This allows us to continue with this practice. Please make your check payable to “Steve Millikin Black Cap Veterans Group or BCVG” and mail to Bill Clingenpeel, Treasurer BCVG, 2 Kinlock Trail, Greensboro, NC 27410-6154.
