Give a young philatelist an intelligent gift this year by purchasing one or more special first day covers benefitting the AFDCS Youth Scholarship Fund. Each cover purchased at $20 or more will provide a one-year subscription to First Days to a youth member or club.

The 2011 Youth Scholarship Fund covers feature the 1861 Civil War stamps and were created and donated by artist Dave Curtis. Dave, winner of numerous cachetmaker awards, started to create first day covers back in 1996. He uses a form of printing known as reductive block printing to create his popular covers.
