Lick Creek VFD membership checks have gone missing

Lick Creek Volunteer Fire Department recently sent out second notices for the 2018 membership dues, and several members tell us they have paid already but their checks have not cleared the bank. We did not receive those payments.
All payments we receive are deposited within a week or two, at the most.We talked to the postmaster, and he said the missing checks may have been damaged in the mail-sorting facility in Springfield or Kansas City when the letters were run through the mail-processing machines. For anyone who sent Lick Creek VFD a check a month or so ago and that check has not cleared the bank after a month or more has passed, it’s unlikely we are going to receive that check. Please call us at 679-4577 if this has happened to you.  
Thank you,
Lick Creek Valley Fire Department
