School is out for the summer, but many teachers are busy planning for the next school year. That is the case for Tish, who is a teacher at Meadowlawn Middle School in St. Petersburg. She wants to start a Lego building club next school year, so she is hoping that some REXers will have Legos they are not using and would like to donate to the club. Tish hopes that she can get enough over the summer to be able to hit the ground running with the club in August. She is willing to pick them up, and can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jeanne Canton had requested postcards from certain U.S. states to add to a collection that she started long ago. Jeanne reports that since the request came out several months ago, she has enjoyed receiving many lovely postcards. She says that the majority of the cards she received were of Delaware and Oklahoma, and that the most amazing thing is that there were no duplicates. Jeanne wishes to thank all of the wonderful people who were so kind and caring toward her, and to let readers know that the thrill of finding the postcards in her mailbox has made her happy again.
