Labels and Launches at Haas Lake RV Park

Pam and I volunteered to help with anything they need here at the campground and they offered to let us send out thousands of flyers/postcards.  They need to put on labels and stamps.  We were thinking more of some outside work but that's what they offered so we gladly got to it.

We showed up about 9:45AM which is a pretty great time to start working :).  They are getting ready start the camping season and are sending out an announcement to about 7,000 addresses.
Pam and I got set up in the main campstore/office area and started at it.  Thank goodness these are peel off labels and stamps!
We get to meet the folks in the office and get to know them a little bit.  They are nice folks and are really working hard to make this the best season yet at the Haas Lake RV park campground.
Ruth is the manager of the campground and Linda is one of the folks working in the office.  She and Judy handle all the reservations and administrative details of the operation.  In fact, it is quite a huge effort.  They have almost 500 campsites and it is like running a little city.  Lots of activity going on.

I am not sure how many labels we did yesterday, but Pam and I were at it about five hours before we called it a day.  (Like I said, pretty good hours...)  We ran out of stamps but have another box of labels and a never ending supply of postcards.   We likely will come back again later in the week.
When we left, there was still time for Pam to do some laundry and hang it out to dry for a while.
Then we had to bring it inside since the wind was blowing so hard.
After that was done, Pam planted some things in her garden boxes and planter pots.
Later, daughter Kelly emailed me and said she has finally done it!  After many years, she finally published her greeting cards She launched her line:  'lovehislove' and she is already making sales online.  

They are creative and humorous.  You won't find these in your neighborhood card store, I guarantee it! Her website 'PunchInTheFACEDesign' describes how she got started.  Here is an excerpt:

                         In the summer between my junior and senior years of college (summer of '04), I enrolled in an independent study graphic design class. I had decided that what the world needed was not another poster, or another record cover, or another logo. What the world needed was some new greeting cards. I've loved letters- getting them, writing them... it was one of the few ways I was able to communicate with my Grandma when I was younger. So, noticing that most of the "christian" greeting cards made me want to vomit, I decided to... remodel them a bit. I created a line of greeting cards that excited me and made me laugh...

She launched her line of cards, 'lovehislove' (in case you missed it).  Be sure to check out the simple, lovely Mother's Day Card and get yours today!  Buy the dozens...

Megan Update:  She is in the middle of her latest second round of chemo and is having a rough go of it.  Please continue to pray for her, her family and Adam.  Never give up.  Never.  They'd appreciate your encouragement at "For the Love of Meghan" on Facebook.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  Hope your week is going well!  Thanks for the notes, emails, Followers, readers, lurkers, etc etc ~ you get the point!  We appreciate the contact and connections.
