Group Exhibit (Take Pictures down)

Dear Ladies,  it doesn't seem possible that it won't be long before we have to bring our pitures home.  I can't believe it.  It seems like we just put them up!  WOW!  We will definetely need all the help we can get!  We have to take them down and wrap them up in the paper we brought them in.  We need all those who participated to come pick your image/s up or make arrangments with someone to do it for you.  I know this is so difficult for those of you who work, and I do sympathize, but no body has a big enough car or van to bring home so many images.  Plus we just don't want to be responsible for damaging them.  Please begin to make plans.  I will also ask if there is a way for you to pick them up later in the day, but I cannot promise this. 

If you can come to help us, please rsvp "yes."  If you cannot come to help us, please rsvp "no" but leave a comment about who will pick up your pictures.  Please contact me about your pictures only if you have already contacted at least 2 other people and have not been successful in arranging a "pickup".  Thanks for understanding.  It is not that we would help if we could, it just that there are too many. 

Let's plan to go to lunch when we are done with our work.  I think we should be able to finish in 2 hours or less, but I am not sure about this.  There are still lots of pictures at this point and time.  Cross your fingers that some more sell!  Less work and more money for the photographers!

    If anyone is in a crunch, I can pick yours up, along with Meghavi's. I'll get there between 12:30-1:00 right after my class.

    • Stacy O

      Hello, I have been searching for everyone since 1:00 and have been told everyone left. I don't know who has or where Meghavi's photo is.

      February 28, 2013

  • Meghavi S.

    Stacy O. offered to grab mine. I work way out in outer SE so no way I could get there till 4 p.m. at the earliest. Anyways, thank you Stacy. Now I don't have to stress and run back and forth between two parts of town.

    P.s. My parents are moving to Ridgefield, WA and the back is huge. Lots of acreage..pool, etc. good place in the summer to meetup . its about 7 miles from the refuge...just heads up.

    I will be there at noon to pick up my images... but I have a meeting at 1pm (in Wilsonville) so will unfortunately not be able to stay and help - so sorry!

    I am in meetings from 9am until 2pm. I was hoping we could pick up earlier in the day. My husband and I share a car so I will see if he can drop me off and pick me up that day. Otherwise how late can we pick up?

    February 21, 2013

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Can he come between 12 and 2pm?

      February 26, 2013

    • Kristin T.

      Yes

      February 26, 2013

  • Brenda H

    If it's not a problem, I will need to pick up my photos in the morning (between 8am and 9am) and then head to my office from there. I will bring my own paper and tape, so you can use any of my leftover papers that may be at City Hall or with someone else. Thanks.

    February 26, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    We will meet at 12 noon and take down our own photos and those we are taking for someone else. We will work in pairs to make the job of wrapping each in paper easier. You may want to bring plastic trash bags in case it is raining to cover the pictures for transport to the car.

    I will come and help wrap or what ever. I have not yet joined the group.

    February 22, 2013

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Thanks, Jo. Look forward to meeting you.

      February 24, 2013

  • Lori H.

    I have a meeting in Canby that afternoon. Rececca will take my piece for me.

    February 24, 2013

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Thanks for letting me know, Lori

      February 24, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    Ladies, Elaine at the City Hall has very little space in her cubicle in the back office. She can only keep a few pictures until closing. It is imperative that you contact someone in the group who is going to pick up your picture for you. I cannot transport very many nor do I want to be responsible for too many. Please contact me about what you will be doing.

    February 23, 2013

  • Donna C.

    I have to work, can I pick up later in the day?

    February 23, 2013

  • GiGi P.

    I am still dealing with a flu. Would not be able to stay for long.

    February 22, 2013

  • Stacy O

    Although I do not have anything, I could help if arriving about 12:45 or 1:00 is ok (I have a class in Ptld until 12:15).

    Also, if someone would like me to pick their's up and retrieve it from me later in the day or two, I can do that.
    I live in SE Portland near 52nd SE Stark.

    • Meghavi S.

      Awesome! I'll call you once I know where I'm working that day so I know from what time on I'm free;) Thanks so much!

      February 21, 2013

    • Stacy O

      ok

      February 22, 2013

  • Gina D.

    I will do my best to be there, if not I will make arrangements for my photos to be picked up. Thank you!

    February 22, 2013

  • Fay L.

    I am working from 11 to 3 pm on that day and don't know anyone to ask to pick up my photo. Is there a plan to have a volunteer come earlier and stay later for those of us who have to work thatbday

    February 21, 2013

    • Betty D.

      Hi Fay - Do you have just one picture? I work in Beaverton, and was planning to pick mine up during lunchtime. If you want, I could pick up yours as well, then you could meet with me at my office when you get off. *I'm going to the HDR class tomorrow if you want to discuss details.

      February 22, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    I am sorry that this is difficult for people to get to. I understand you work. But you have to make some contact with the people who are in the group to ask. I have heard from very few people about how they plan to pick up their photos and there are only 12 attending so far. I need to hear from everyone who participated in the exhibit before next Thursday, Please!

    February 22, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    I spoke to Elaine today and she can only keep a few pictures in her office untiil about 4 pm in the afternoon. So folks you need to be making plans and communicating with me as to what you will do to get your pictures. I cannot take too many home with me.

    February 20, 2013

  • Heather S.

    I will come out to pick my photos up. I want to stay and help a little but I may not be able to due to filings with the court that day. I won't know probably until the day before.

    I have to be out of town that week. Joe will come and pick up my photo for me..

    February 19, 2013

  • Meghavi S.

    I will try to get a half day that am, but no guarantees if you can find out if they can be picked up late afternoon, that would help.. I will try contact hopefully with better luck being out sick 2 weeks ago, I just cannot afford to take days off

    February 18, 2013

  • GiGi P.

    I will bring whatever wrapping paper we saved from some of the pictures were left behind after the handing. I would suggest for everyone to bring wrapping materials and tape to secure it to make sure that your pictures are safe.

    February 17, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    I cannot be to city hall until 12 pm. If others can do this earlier, that would be fine. But we will need to have an agreement about how is will be done. I will check with Elaine.
