Christmas/Holiday card list tradition/Update: Currently who is on list

Dear Friends, Tootsie1 posted asking about the Christmas/Holiday card list this year. It has been a bit of a tradition in years past.

I have offered to pull it together if there is interest.

I will be using the list from last year as a starting point, so if you were on that list and prefer not to be on it this year let me know. Also if you are on list but have moved in the last year, please let me know your new address.

It is also important to remember, you can be on the list without committing to send cards. I know that many have a financial burden, but I would like to see that everyone who needs some holiday cheer is included. If you prefer to receive "holiday" wishes rather than those for traditional Christmas, please indicate that.

Please email me here by Nov. 16 with any changes, additions or deletions. Managing the list is not hard, but it is time consuming sending it out as there is no “group” mail function here. For any who would find it easier to manage a Word doc, include the email address you wish to receive it at.

Thanks to Gail for asking about this tradition.

    I have reviewed last year's list and have not been able to find posts this year for the folks listed below. These folks will not be included on this year's list unless I hear from either them or someone else that they should be included. I know that sometimes the "search" function here doesn't pick up everything, so just want to make sure no one is removed that shouldn't be.

    Thanks

    List
    I've seen winniepooh post maybe once but not often also, and could be wrong about this, but believe that Kate58 passed but I'm not sure. Imliess is still around but doesn't post any longer. AceSFO's partner passed and he doesn't post anymore either. Seems to me that i've seen TMac52 post recently. OK people help me out, I've got chemo brain here too :)

    Greetings Marie

    I wasn't in this club last year at this time... so what's up?

    If you need any help with labels or addressing or printing... I'd be happy to do that at no cost. I own a printing and mailing company here in Toledo. Just let me know what's needed and i'd be glad to help

    also, tell me what this is all about... do you want my address and stuff?

    sorry for stupid questions.

    No question ever stupid!
    For the last several years, some of the members of the board have exchanged cards during the holiday season.

    Needless to say that can't be done without exchanging name(s) and address of where to send the cards. So each year someone volunteers to "be the gatherer" and send out the whole list to each person who participates.

    I appreciate your offer about labels, etc. In fact having labels available for some who are not able to do much writing might be of help.

    So if you don't mind, I will leave it to each person to contact you via email here if they have that need. In regards to this, if you will include a regular email address I can send you a Word doc which might help facilitate the process.

    Thanks for your generosity.

    labels
    once the database is complete, I'd be happy to print labels and mail to anyone who would like a complete set of mailing labels

    here's my email: [email protected]

    I love Christmas Cards and the entire Holiday season.

    thank you

    Christmas card list
    I apologize for not posting, didn't realize it had been so long. We are still riding the cancer train and I do lurk here. Mostly I have been in my own little world, my youngest grandchild was promoted to heaven in Oct. 2011 and since that time my world just didn't seem to exist, I think I am out of my funk now and think some of my experiences this past year in my husbands cancer journey may be of some assistance to some of the newer members just starting this journey, so I will try to be more helpful, as all of you were to me when our journey started 2 years ago. I care about each and everyone of you and you all inspire me so very much, I guess I just didn't feel I had anything to offer to anyone. Please keep myself and Roger on the Christmas card list, I truly enjoyed sending and receiving cards last year. Kim

    Who is on the list so far
    Like Santa, I am checking my list...but am sure will be doing it more than just twice...lol.

    Just a reminder...being on the list does not commit you to SENDING cards, only that you are agreeable to receiving them. Also, there is no obligation to send a card to every name on this list. I have tried to insure that these folks have posted sometime in 2012, but there are some who rarely post now. It is up to each person as to whom they send a card.

    Below is an alphabetical list by screen name of who is on the current card list. If you are on this list and would prefer not to be, please let me know. If you are not on this list and would like to be, please send me your mailing name and address by Nov. 16.

    I am updating the list below as I get requests, so you should see/not see your name if you sent me email (allow 1 day before checking back).

    Thanks.

    Hi Kim. I read your "about me" page and am interested to know more about you and your husbands cancer journey. I hope you'll start posting again. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your grandchild. That in itself should be more than enough for one family to have to endure. It's sad that you have the cancer to deal with, as well. Happy to hear that you're starting to feel more like your old self.

    Take care,

    Dear Kim
    You have been added to the 2012 list. I can't edit your name from the "not on the list" for some reason, but be assurred you ARE ON the card list now.

    I am so very sorry to hear about your grandchild. Nothing is more heart wrenching than to lose the young ones.

    No apoligies necessary for not posting, but don't forget this is a two-way street here...sometimes we can give others support and sometimes we are the ones in need.

    Please update us on how you and Roger are doing.

    Hugs,
