Quick Mid Posting!

Just wanted to share a photo I got of some youngsters doing community service. It always warms my heart to hear that when asked to do service my project gets chosen. These girls from Reed Point Family, Career & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) made 100 Halloween and Thanksgiving cards and are on to making Veteran’s day cards. If you look at their cards they did a fabulous job. I’ve blurred their faces because I did not have permission to post their photos but they are just beautiful inside and out let me tell you!

Thank you ladies! Fantastic work you’ve done!

August Update Very Late!

I am very behind with everything. Due to being in the hospital I have to go to many doctor appointments and work has been especially busy which just leaves me no time for anything and that is why my website has been neglected, something had to take the backseat and since I had to mail the cards the site was it!
So as I mentioned, I was in the hospital for a few days in June, then on vacation in July, then I had so many cards I had to recruit help when the August mailing came in because although I have no cards scheduled to come in during the June/July months they kept right on coming so I couldn’t do it myself! I called up my good friends Denise and Pam who recruited the Women’s Connection at the First Congregational Church in Manchester, NH to help me out. After church one day we all got together and sorted over 4000 cards! The number is not accurate because with all the help I had (over 15 of us) I couldn’t get the counts exactly because the stacks of cards came faster than I could count and put them in the boxes! Here are some photos from that day…

Thank you so much to Denise and Pam, all the ladies of the Women’s Connection and to everyone who donated cards, envelopes and postage, as I could not have gotten through my August mailing without you all!
Until September, oh wait, it is September! See you soon!
