The Card-a-Thon date has been confirmed..and it will officially be held on October 10th, 2009... 10 a.m - 4 p.m!!
This is wonderful news...and I cannot end this brief post to my blog without thanking the Oceanside First United Methodist Church and Pastor Janet for donating their church hall for the event.
Thank you also, to Phyllis.. the church secretary, for working with me on prospecive dates..and for being more than wonderful about following up on things and always getting back to me in a more than timely manner.
Now that the date is "official"....the Card-a-thon truly feels like its's a reality!
So.... that's the good news..
and...the not so good news is..the company that I was hoping to secure a donation of double sided tape told me today that they regretfully have to decline on ALL donations this year because of the economy and how it has impacted their business..
This was sad to hear because an all day event and hundreds of cards being made requires what I call "oodles" of tape...
If you would like to donate a roll or two of double sided tape (Scotch/ dispenser type)...you'd be saving the day with this tape dilemma!
Please scroll down to the prior Card-a-Thon post here on my blog for info regarding needed donations...
and please know that no donation is too small ...
