The Colonial Region Directors invite you to join us in Boxboro, Massachusetts on Sunday, November 19th, 2023 for our Fall License Plate Meet!

The Colonial Region is returning to the Boxboro Regency, in Boxboro, Mass for fall 2023. The Sunday meet format has proven to be popular and well attended; with 206 ALPCA members plus guests at the fall 2022 meet! The Boxboro Regency, located at 242 Adams Place, Boxboro Mass, boasts the largest hall space that we’ve ever had at 13,000+ square feet. With over 125 tables this means more plates, friends, and camaraderie than we’ve ever had under one roof at prior meet sites. With last year’s attendance being the best attended one day regional meet in the country, at our fall event you should expect to see friends that you may not have seen in years, meet new ones, and possibly have access to the most plates outside of attending the annual convention.

Bring your license plate displays to Boxboro!

Start planning your display now and enter it in our long-standing competition for which awards will be presented in the following categories: Passenger, Non-passenger, Small Display (ten plates or fewer), Junior Display (entrant must be under 21 years of age), and Best of Show. Be sure to consider your method of display construction, and accompanying write-up or description so those viewing can understand the significance of your display. We make a big deal out of encouraging members to bring their displays, so consider opening the doors to your collection with this long-standing tradition. We also recognize the member that travel the extra miles to attend with our long-distance award.

Auction! Auction! Auction!

Our donation auctions are always lively and there is something there for everyone. The Colonial Region donation auction traditionally features plates of countless description, age, jurisdictional issuance, and value point. The Colonial Region has relied on the thoughtful donations of ALPCAns across the country for many years, as this is how we fund many of our special member benefit projects. Please consider donating, be sure to register and bid! Managed deftly by Auction Manager Bob Senatro, this is an element of our meets not to be missed.
