Do you have a friend or family member that would be interested in SSHSA and PowerShips? Now is the time to tell them to join! We are introducing a "Refer a Friend" contest to our members. For each friend, family member, or acquaintance that you refer and who joins SSHSA as a new member, your name will be entered in a raffle to win a special maritime prize pack, which includes an offical SSHSA hat, patch, and pin, five collectible Samuel Ward Stanton booklets, and Photographic Portraits of American ocean Steamships (1850-1870). The more people you refer, the better chance you have to win. You may refer a friend by asking them to visit our website, call us at (401) 463-3570, or e-mail Alissa Cafferky at acafferky@sshsa.org for more information on SSHSA and how to join. When asked, "How did you hear about SSHSA?," your referral must specify your name to ensure you receive the credit.

Hurry- this contest ends on May 31, 2015! The winner will be notified via telephone, and will be announced in the June issue of The Telegraph. We look forward to your support and referrals.
