PENNY POSTCARDS DISCONTINUED!!

TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THE PARTY!!

Please tell your friends about this event since we

notified people by e-mail, this time - not by US Mail

(expensive). But we don't have all the e-mail addresses,

so some people didn't get the word. Sorry about that,

but it costs a lot of money to buy and mail postcards.

 

The Post Office just informed us that they don't carry

penny postcards anymore.

Now they cost $9.97 plus tax - each!!

So, pass the word.

 

Please CALL your friends or send them an e-mail to let

them know about the Party. Thanks!!
