Default My Cub Scout needs a favor..

Hello everyone,

My son is in his 4th yr of Cub Scouts and on Feb 21st they will be celebrating the Scout Blue & Gold banquet, this yr the theme is the ABC's of America & the boys are trying to collect postcards sent from every state in the USA, it's a big project for 5 boys to pull off so we are hoping you can help. They have contacted their families in the States but as military families, alot of us know people in the same States so I thought I'd try & help them out by hitting a wider audience & that's where you lovely ladies come in

All we need is for you to mail a postcard that either has the name of the state you live in or the city on the front, I know I have multiple people from the same state on this list but honestly our mail is not that reliable & if we have duplicate postcards it's not a problem. We need to get our project going asap so if you can either pop a postcard in the mail or post here to let me know you can help that would be awesome & I know the boys will really appreciate it. Postage from the US to us here in Italy is the same as regular mail so you don't need to send it airmail or anything, just a regular stamp or postcard stamp.
Postcards should be sent to:
CALLUM SCHULZ
PSC 827 BOX 123
FPO AE 09617

If you just want to write Blue & Gold 2009 as the message or write something to Cal, whatever you want. Thankyou so much for your help.

Heidi & Callum

I'll send one from Oklahoma. I will check to see if I have any Minnesota ones since we are military also. We lived there for several years, I will also check for Missouri as we were stationed there too. I'm sure I have these somewhere in my scrapbooking stuff.

Good luck to your son with his project. I see that you have one coming from Illinois already. Boy Scouts is a great organization, my DS is an Eagle Scout and I have held all kinds of positions during his time in Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts.

I put a link in 3-4 threads so hopefully someone will come over here and sign up.

I also have a couple of postcards from South Carolina so I could send one if you need it.

Hi everyone, sorry for not getting back sooner, we had a long w/e in Rome & all that walking kicked this pregnant ladies butt so I've been taking alot of naps!

Here are the States he has so far..
South Carolina
Texas
New Mexico
Oklahoma
Virginia
Arizona
California
Missouri
Georgia
New York
Nevada
Indiana
Hawaii
New Jersey
Illinois
Maine
Florida
he also has Washington D.C.

Alaska is proving to be tricky, we haven't heard from anyone there..i know we still have a bunch in the mail so fingers crossed.
Thankyou all so much for your help with this, we have till Feb 21st to collect so if you can send from any of our missing States we'd really appreciate it.

Heidi & Callum

Heidi,

My Mom and Dad caravaned to Alaska last summer with some friends... I'll see if she has any "extra" post cards! If not, I'll recycle the card Mom sent from North Pole, Alaska. I'll keep you updated. Good luck with the scout project and the baby!

Hi Everyone,

Cal & I just wanted to write & say a HUGE THANKYOU to everyone who helped him with the project, they had their banquet on Saturday & the display of postcards was AWESOME..they managed to collect 36 different states & D.C. With your help Callum recieved over 30 of those states! He loved doing this & I'm sure knowing the post here we'll still see a few more postcards...the boys plan on making a big display of the postcards so we'll be sure to post a photo of them with all of them.
The boys in his Den were thrilled when it was announced that they had won the prize for the best decorated table & display board, they are so excited about it & get to keep the Pack Spirit Key for another month.

Thankyou so much, it would never have happened without all your generous help.

Heidi & Callum

My Webelos sent over a postcard and was just thrilled that Callum's den won for the best table decorating/display board. He thinks it's really neat that he was able to help another Webelos den so far away, even just a little bit!
