September at Mindport

It’s been a busy summer, with visitors hailing from as far as Germany and as close as the Lettered Streets. Fall brings us quieter times here, but it’s still an active month. We’d love to see you for any or all of the following!

Correspondence Club: Monthly Meetings Open to All (September 24th, 10:30-12:30)
Join an ever changing crew of letter writers, art senders, and USPS supporters/fans for a couple of hours of creative, stress-relieving fun. Mindport provides scissors, typewriters, pens, glue sticks, an evolving collection of interesting papers, and some basic instruction as desired. Everybody loves “real mail,” and making it and sending it can feel pretty good too.
