There was a great turn out for our March meeting with 10 members present.
The meeting was opened with a reading from Postcard Stories, by Jan Carson. The book is a collection of the short stories she wrote on her daily postcards in 2015.
For the Show & Mail part of the evening Jessica showed off some vintage postcards she had received from her in-laws. Marike opened a letter from some young family members which contained some cute Harry Potter legos, we were all delighted!
A few pen pal requests were read out from across the globe and one match was made with a penpal in the U.S.
