JRPS license plates are in

May 9, 2012 12:41pm

The wait is over. If you ordered a James River Park System license plate, you either got yours in the mail yesterday (or the day before) or will be getting it shortly. I just got mine (pictured) yesterday. Considering I ordered it in February of 2010, when I wrote a column about the plates, I’d say the DMV has not exactly been on their “A” game the past two years. The again, I’m not sure what the DMV’s “A” game would look like. No matter. The plates are in and look great. If you haven’t ordered one, or never knew you could, now’s a good time to look into it. The cool thing about owning a set is that after 1,000 are sold, $10 of the $25 cost goes to the JRPS. It’s a great way to give back to the park. Click here to learn more.
