I didn't participate in this so far (first I've heard of it) but hope to next year, but I have a suggestion: Attach "permanent" contact information to the box (moderator?), with a note explaining what it is and "if you come into possession of this box, pleas contact so-and-so." Kind like geocaching (look it up if you've never heard of it); a similar game where you add and remove stuff from a box, with a web link explaining what it is for anybody who may find the box and doesn't know what it is.We have had some instances when the box has disappeared for a while, and luckily it has always popped back up. One situation that frightens me is where a member passes away while the box is in his possession. A spouse or other family member will most likely have no idea what the box is for, where it should go, or anything. Thus, we need to have a valid email address and phone number. In a worst case scenario, a phone call could be answered by a family member so that we can at least communicate and figure out what step to take next.
