Today was news letter mailing day. About 9 a.m. Janice, Jacque, Norm, Arlene and I gathered in the library to staple, fold, sticker and label some 208 monthly newsletters. We were through about 11:30. Many hands make the job go quickly.
Some question whether mailing a news letter is worth the cost and effort in this day of the Internet. Certainly we would like to be able to deliver it via e-mail or post it online for those who prefer that option. But there's something about that physical presence in the mailbox once a month that many folks cherish, especially Compton friends who live in Arizona, Chicago, California, etc. At $26 and some change to mail, it seems a small price to spend 2 to 3 hours a month in the company of friends communicating with the wide world of Compton Friends and Family.
