Just a reminder that if you would like to receive new or used greeting cards we need to hear from you by Friday. We'll need your name, the address to which you would like the cards sent and an indication of which kinds of cards you would like (i.e. holiday only, not holiday, both, new, used). We will publish the list on Thursday, Jan. 19.

Elaine of Weeki Wachee is a retired woman who hand-quilts for family, friends and children in need. She is looking for a fold-up quilt stand to help her do these projects. She would prefer it to stand against a wall when not in use, and to have three or four poles and cogs on both ends to help roll the quilt. If you can help Elaine, please call her at (352) 442-3011.
