1,500 P400 Plates Sold!

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve reached our goal of 1,500 Plymouth commemorative license plates sold!
The P400 staff and volunteers are now working to ensure that all applications are completed accurately. If you know that you submitted an application and your information (address, phone number, current license plate number) has changed, please call our office at 508-812-2020 so we can update your application.
If you’re just catching up, Plymouth 400 has been selling license plates as a fundraiser for the organization, and has spent the past two years collecting applications from people across the Commonwealth. The Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) requires that an organization sell 1,500 plates before they can begin to produce and distribute them and now that P400 has reached this milestone, those who have purchased one should expect to receive their actual P400 license plate in the next 3-6 months.
After the first 1,500 plates are produced, the RMV requires that another 1,500 are sold within two years, however this process will be much different as the RMV will now be handling all plate sales (rather than the P400 team!). Plymouth 400’s responsibility will be to promote the sale of the plates through advertising, PR and social media.
Why should you support the Plymouth 400 plate? Jamestown’s 400th anniversary in 2007 had its own commemorative plate, and over 90,000 of these plates were sold throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, producing approximately $445,000 for the commemoration.
Here’s what Executive Director Michele Pecoraro said about reaching the magic number:
“Plymouth 400 staff and volunteers have put an incredible amount of time and effort into reaching our goal of 1,500 plates sold and we are so appreciative of all those who purchased a commemorative plate. A team of volunteers is working diligently help us finalize applications which we will submit, with a required $100,000 bond, to the RMV as soon as they are complete and accurate. Even though it doesn’t end here and we have another batch of plates to sell, we anticipate with exposure through the RMV that the next 1,500 will be much easier than the first!”
Cheryl Soares, our administrative coordinator (also known as “the License Plate Lady”) is also thrilled about the news. Here’s what she had to say:
“We have been working on the license plate project for a little over two years. I am so excited that we have reached our goal and thankful to all of those who have purchased plates and stuck with us as well as the many volunteers who have helped with the administrative work that accompanies each license plate application. I look forward to handing all of the applications over to the RMV and getting the plates produced and I can’t wait to see them on the road!”
