We were delighted to welcome 3 new members to our October meeting, making it a grand total of 12 gathered to put pen to paper.
The meeting was opened with a reading from Letters of Note, a sweet thank you note from Roald Dahl to an imaginative 9 year old fan who had sent him a letter containing a dream.
During the Show and Mail part of the evening Jessica passed around a few letters we had received from other letter writing clubs to congratulate us on our 1st anniversary milestone. She also shared a letter from her pen pal at the CLE Club which included a vintage postcard of Sark that she had found at a paper sale in Ohio.
Three pen pal requests were also matched this evening – 1 from Ireland, 1 from Italy and 1 from the U.S.
In total 30 pieces of mail were sent out this month to 10 different countries from Box. No. 10 at Le Planque on Route de Cobo. The breakdown of the outgoing mail is as follows:
7 GSY, 9 UK, 5 EUR, 9 ROW
