For the month of August, I decided to shake things up a bit. I sent out a survey to the Correspondence Club members and based on their feedback, made a few changes to the structure of the club. This month, we had a theme, which was Hometown Pride. With all of the Olympics coverage going on, I thought it would be a fitting topic for each of us to talk about our favorite aspects of our home cities. Not only could you talk about your hometown pride in your letter, but the idea was that your little gift would also match the theme and represent some part of your home city.

  1. Sorry I did not send a photo this time– I taped it all up and sealed it and then was like… oh. Crap.
