Happy New Year everyone. I am sorry there has not been much activity on this board. It has been a very busy time of the year for everyone including our shippers.
Phyllis (west coast/mountain) would like to take a break.

Renate (central) will be continuing to send to her current unit, so if you have been sending to her, please continue.

My plan had been to finish up my current unit, who was scheduled to come home this spring, but they are being sent home early and they are NOT being replaced. We are trying now, to cover the units we have, so if you currently sending to Phyllis, please check here to see who to send to. If you currently send to me, please continue for now, but if you could let me know they are being sent that would help. If you have Renate's address, send to her.

I would like to see CFS continue, but units are getting shorter deployments and we often don't have any contact with them until boxes are returned undeliverable.

Pat (imnchghere)

I appreciate what CFS has meant to me since I joined in about 6 years ago.....some of us have met in person, others in just an online group. Behind the scenes, in order to receive/ship the cards to units, takes a person with dedication. I hope that in some way that maybe just one card I made has touched the life of the receiver. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for those serving our country and the families that share their soldier. And thank you to Pat, Renate and Phyllis (our current shippers) and to all that preceded them in helping to give our soldiers a nice card to send back home to their loved ones.

You have done such a great service to our Men and Women in arms. Thanks so much!

Although it is sad to see it slowing and possible coming to an end, it is greater for our guys and gals not to have to stay there so long or to have returning units replaced with new ones.

Thanks for all you have done.

Thanks to all of you for your understanding. I have been with CFS since Crystal started it 7 years ago. It was one of the first things I did after getting my baby bug and learned about this MB. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of the ladies who make and have sent cards on a regular basis for all these years.
If there is anyone who would like to take over this group, please let me know.

I want to thank all of you who have been so generous of your time in making cards for our soldiers. I have enjoyed this journey tremendously. I agree with Deb's comments, so well written. God Bless our soldiers and all of you.

Christie, I don't think there will be any more themes/rounds posted but Renate is still shipping cards and you can send cards to her at any time. If you are still interested, let me know and I'll PM you her address.

Hi I would like the address to where I could send some cards.
Thank You all for your hard work. When I read that it was coming
to an end I felt an empty heart. I enjoy making cards to help others.

Phyllis, thank you for providing my address to the ladies requesting it. I look forward to receiving the cards and will send them to my unit. Our troops are as always happy to receive the cards and knowing that they are not forgotten.
I will let you know when I receive the cards.

Sad to just find this forum. For those that are interested in still sending cards to our military, I would respectfully suggest checking out www.operationwritehome.org. This is a wonderful organization I've been sending cards, letters, etc. to. With the "draw downs" Sandy (the creator and CEO of OWH), while still sending cards out to troops, is also setting up contacts at our embassies, veterans' organizations and hospitals so the need is still there for those cards!
