September Mailing


Just so you know — the database is taking a little longer to build than expected, so our September address mailing to members is being done manually by me. I've sent out addresses to half of our 257 members as of yesterday, and will have the rest done by this evening. Thanks for your patience — needless to say it's a bit slow doing it this way!

:-)

Update: I've just finished sending off the last name on the list — whew! If you haven't yet received your address for mailing your postcard, please let me know. Thanks!

OH wow, that's a lot of work! I got my very nice email and am about to write the first postcard now. How exciting!

Lori said...

Thanks so much, all — your lovely messages kept me going today when I thought my fingers would seize up permanently! Off now to do something that doesn't involve keyboards ...

Oooh - and having just written my postcard, this might be a tip for others: remember to note on the postcard that it's for the Benevolent Postcard Society mailing! This may seem obvious, but I write a lot of postcards, and I did have to remind myself.

Yay, I just wrote my postcard and am off to mail it! Reminds me of being 9 years old and having pen pals. Lovely!
