RE: [midatlanticretro] Good news -- museum shelving
- Exciting news! I wish I was minutes away rather than hours away...I would
definitely be in for helping out. Sounds like a lot of fun!
What we need just as much as money and shelving is * HELP * ... we need
people who are reliable, strong, can follow directions, and who'll show up
on a regularly scheduled basis to do real work. So far Jeff. B and I, along
with Jeff J. and others, have done most of the work by ourselves. We've

Fair. While the fair itself was OK (and some of the TCF staff are
serious social catastrophes - ripping raffle tickets 5 feet away from

While I was down there I got the chance to chat with a friend. Long

moving down there mid summer and will subsequently be able to
volunteer a lot of time to the museum. Looking forward to spending a
lot more time down at Infoage!
