5 October 2019 - #150yearsofpostcards - DFW/ Plano meetup


Hello Everyone!!

My name is Helen, and I would like to organize a meet up in celebration of the 150 years of postcards! Postcards will celebrate their 150th anniversary later this year, on October 1st. See more details Here.:love:

Here are the details related to the meet-up:

Quote:

Date: October 5th, 2019
Place: Starbucks Patio in Plano (1709 Preston Rd Ste B, Plano, TX 75093)
If it rains, we will re-locate to the inside of Starbucks
Best thing about this location: There is a mailbox right next to it!!
Time: 1pm - 4pm
Theme: #150YearsofPostcards


If you are interested, please fill out the official sign-up form Click here

I/Someone (if interested) will design a few styles of meet-up cards for this theme and you will be able to pick out which one you like to order.

Note that these cards are not mandatory or anything for the meetup, but just a fun "limited edition" card that is provided to commemorate the meetup and to share the joy of postcrossing with the world! You can send these during the meetup/keep as a souvenir/or even mail it to friends and family during the meetup.

Again, if you are interested in the celebration, please leave a comment below!! THANK YOU!! Hope to meet you soon!!

Cheers
Helen :embarassed:

Good afternoon Helen!

I would enjoy a meetup on October 5th - I have a wedding to attend at 5pm, so if I were to attend, it would need to be around lunchtime.

Don't go planning anything around me, but I am definitely interested!

Thanks and have a great day,
Emma

Dear Helen and other Plano postcrossers,

We'd like to invite everyone organizing meetings around the 150th anniversary of postcards to do something a little bit extra on the day, if possible. :) Here are some suggestions:

- Broadcast a little video message from your meeting, either live or by recording a video and uploading it. For example, sing or wish the postcard a happy birthday, or show the world what your celebrations look like.

- Connect with another meetup happening simultaneously in another location, so that a small moment of connection can be established between the 2 groups of postcard enthusiasts! Remember to reach out to the respective meetup organizer beforehand, in order to exchange contacts and sort out a suitable time.

- Take pictures and share them with us! Tag them #150yearsofpostcards or send them to us on social media or via email, so that we can share them with the whole community. We would like everyone to feel included and to show the world what the celebrations of this special milestone look like.

Most of all, we hope you enjoy the event and this special day together — it's a birthday party, so remember to relax and have fun. :)

Good luck, and long live the postcard!
