Postcards at the Park

July 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

An awesome Albemarle County activist is bringing back her Postcards at the Park events. Meet at the covered shelter by the playground/splash pad. Kids are welcome. There’s usually plenty of parking along the street.

There will be bundles of 5 postcards/stamps/addresses for various races near and far (not much for VA till post-primaries). This will allow for you to come and do a quick set of 5 postcards, meet some like-minded folks, and get back to your day OR you can do several sets of 5. Aiming for 15-20 postcards would be amazing, but if you’ve got a busy day, we’ll happily take 5 and some community connection! Have your own postcards and/or postcard lists you’re working on? Feel free to stop by to do some with us!

I do ask that all postcards be completed on site and left with their address list so I can ensure they’re sent on the appropriate day for each organization. Please note that some bundles require specific scripts, while others do not. Using your phone to photograph the sample script and copying from that works well.

If you’d like to simply swing by and pick up some postcards and a printed guide to get your own addresses and mail them yourself (or host your own postcard party!), we will have blank postcards available and printed guides (also attached here) available. I HIGHLY recommend everyone try to have their own little postcard gathering of friends – it’s a great way to spend some time together and chat about upcoming elections. The more folks we get engaged in the process, the better!

You’re welcome to bring postcard stamps to donate, a contribution that will 100% go to postage for postcards.

Plenty of postcards and some pens, markers, and stickers will be available, but you’re welcome to bring some as well.
