Congratulations! Your donated postcards raised over $18,500 at Houston with more money coming in from Sunday sales and the silent auction postcards. We will undoubtedly be over $19,000! Our grand total is now over $30,000 raised for the American Cancer Society.

I can't possibly thank all of the people who made this such a huge success, but, of course, I must mention Karey, our fairy godmother and honorary chairperson and her wonderful staff, most especially the patient and hardworking, Andrea. Over 700 postcards were placed in acid-free plastic display bags and velcroed to the display boards before we ever arrived. Can you imagine the work that went into that!

Thanks to Curt over at The Occupational Adventure for these great quotes:
Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age, and to imagine right up to the brink of death that life is only beginning. I think that is the only way to keep adding to one's talent, and one's inner happiness. -- George Sand

The secret of life is to have a task, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for your whole life. And the most important thing is: It must be something you cannot possibly do. -- Henry Moore
