Glynn Electric Steps Up for 2020

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

Employees of Glynn Electric posed for a picture earlier this year after the company owner Matt Glynn became the first local businessman to answer Plymouth 400 Inc.’s call to support one of their newest fundraising efforts – the Plymouth 400 License Plate Frame.
PLYMOUTH – They’ve been framed.
Employees of Glynn Electric posed for a picture earlier this year after the company owner Matt Glynn became the first local businessman to answer Plymouth 400 Inc.’s call to support one of their newest fundraising efforts – the Plymouth 400 License Plate Frame.
More than 1,500 people signed up for a 400 license plate itself – now seen on cars around Plymouth and even the commonwealth – but the folks at the 400th soon realized that there were plenty of drivers in Massachusetts and around the country that had a variety of good reasons not to get their own plate.
• Some 400 supporters live out of state, so couldn’t use a Massachusetts plate.
• Some Massachusetts drivers have special plates already, which a 2020 plate may not be substituted for.
• If you drive a government vehicle, you’re out of luck.
• If you have a livery license (limos, taxis, etc.), you need a specific plate.
• If you drive a vehicle with a commercial plate, or an antique car you can’t make the switch.
• Some people said they just couldn’t afford the fee, $40, which has to be renewed every two years.
“So out of that frustration came this idea for a license plate frame,” 400 volunteer George McKay told the Old Colony “a frame with enough space for the same message – ‘An American Story, A National Legacy’” – that was more flexible, both in terms of the vehicles that could use it and the price supporters would have to pay.
The price – or rather the donation (Plymouth 400 Inc. is a certified nonprofit organization) – begins at $16.20 (get it, 1620?) per plate frame.
You can buy two for a donation of at least $20.20 (yes, 2020).
Sponsors and partners that purchase 50-99 will pay 4.99 each.
If you’re a stalwart supporter of the 400 (and many other community events and activities) like Glynn Electric, and you take between 100 and 999, each frame will cost $4.49.
“You might even want to frame your Plymouth 400 license plate with a Plymouth 400 license plate holder,” McKay said, smiling.
So Glynn ordered 100 and on a sunny day earlier this year, in the middle of a work day, they made an announcement over their PA system and 20 Glynn employees happily made their way out into the parking lot and were individually and, as a group, framed.
