I have finished the request letters and finally have them ready for printing.  I'm going to print them at FedEx because I love their printer, and they have different kinds of paper to choose from.  Since these will not be printed on letterhead, but rather include it...I want them to look as professional as possible.  I will get them printed out tomorrow.  I talked to our Secretary-Treasurer, and we have now set it up to use her address to receive any mail for the organization, so we are all set.  We know that this is all very late in the year for donations, but we are prepared to handle the worst-case scenario of zero donations.  Luckily, this event can be pulled off nicely for under $200, we would just have to cut back on some extras, but ...

Lots and lots to do this next month.  Time is...

Carol, our Secretary-Treasurer, will be back from vacation tomorrow.  I need to contact her to see how we want to handle the donation letter replies. Since she is the secretary, it makes sense to use her address.  As long as the post office doesn't mind.  lol

The peppermint patty machine that I had traded for lables arrived broken and does not vend very well - so I'm working on exchanging it for another triple-head candy machine.  One is on it's way now - but I'm hoping for another.  Tanning salons do wonderful - and the apar...
