Anyone interested in helping?

Hey Michigan friends,

My friend TeachJR of Illinois started a virtual event several months ago wanting to get 200 letterboxes planted all over the country to help celebrate the bicentennial of Illinois. I believe there are around 140 boxes planted, but that still leaves 60ish boxes to go. I know that there are 2 boxes already planted in Michigan.

I just thought I'd throw the idea out there to encourage you to help her meet her goal if you have the time and desire. Maybe you have a box already carved that would fit this theme perfectly! Here's the link if you are interested.

And, a completely random tangent: TeachJR and friends throws an amazing event every year in Illinois (always using the word HOMERDOODLE) if you are looking for a great event to attend. Here is the link to this summer's event:

Just my encouragement to my Michigan letterboxing community. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, everyone!

I have an idea for an Illinois stamp, which hopefully I can get carved and planted before the end of the year.

Thank you so much for helping get the word out, Angel Winks! We are now up to 151 boxes - 49 more needed to reach our goal!
