I like to join things merely for the sake of membership. The more obscure the group the better. Two organizations that I think are endearing and worth joining are the Letter Writers Alliance and the Corduroy Appreciation Club.

The Corduroy Appreciation Club

The Corduroy Appreciation Club is a social club which wishes to cultivate good fellowship by the advancement of Corduroy awareness, understanding, celebration and commemoration of the fabric and all related items. Club events are held on dates which resemble Corduroy.


Club Slogan: The Corduroy Appreciation Club’s slogan is “All Wales Welcome.” is meant to inspire and invite Corduroy Appreciators of all kinds, be they wide wale wearers, pin wale wearers, high low wearers, horizontal Corduroy wearers, Cotton Corduroy wearers, Cashmere Corduroy wearers, whomever, “All Wales Welcome.”

The Letter Writers Alliance

In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission.

As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!
