Ladies and Gentlemen, and the rest of us too.
ServicePens 2012, ServicePens: Pens For Servicemen is complete.
It's now time to focus on what we'll accomplish for 2013.
The pen donations to our servicemen and women for this event will occur June 2013 in Chicago.
This year, IAP members contributed roughly 400 pens produced by 28 individuals and
the Killeen, TX Lions Club including kit donations.
The previous thread had more than 14,000 views.
If 1/10 of those views were unique individuals and each sent just one pen, we could donate 1400 pens.
I'm asking for more participation.
I would like to have a much higher contribution rate than 2012.
Our Servicemen and women deserve it.
During the upcoming year:

I will commit to at least 25. I will make them throughout the rest of this year and up until May of 2013. I will send them in bundles when I get a chance.
I also have quite a few generic blanks:
American Black Cherry
Once I gather up enough for my contribution, I will gladly donate blanks to folks who are willing to pick up the shipping, as long as the blanks are used for the ServicePens 2013 Project. I will post later on when I have everything sorted out.

Here's the deal
I will commit to providing 100 free creekline pen kits (max of 10 to one individual) to people who will commit to providing pens at this site and can't afford to buy the kits. I will also commit to providing 200 Creekline kits at my cost, I will take zero markup to people who can afford to pay for them. In both cases I will bear the cost of shipping first class mail.
Sorry to my north of the border friends due to postage costs this is USA only.
If you want to get in on this. Post here committing to provide pens for the military folks in this program. Then send me a private message and I will tell you how to order the kits.
Go to Store: www.smittyspenworks.com
Contact me if you need instructions they are not on the site

Let me jump on this wagon and commit to do some. I will buy the kits from smitty and get them made. I have doing troop pens once a month with the woodchippers on the arsenal for over a year now. I really enjoy turning with this fine group of men.
