I don't feel like retyping all that I said in another post, so here is a copy and paste about what our Welcoming Committee and Birthday Club were like:

Quote:
I think most of us have put our entire families on the birthday calender at one time or another. I can't remember how I did it though. You can put birthdays and anniversaries on the birthday calender and when it is your birthday, we all say Happy Birithday to you. When Annie Q was a member, she sent everyone an ecard on their birthday. She still sends me one... aww... She is so sweet! Too bad she quit Baby U when her dd graduated from High School because she was one of the people who made this place so special...

Come to think of it, when I joined we used to have a welcoming committee for everyone who posted in Introductions. I got an ecard and everything. It was really nice. We used to have our own ecards on the site we could send for all occassions and that was really nice. We should start that up the birthday cards and the welcoming committee again, because that was really nice. Especially on those birthdays or anniversaries that just don't turn out to be that special.

I'll definitely NEED a few people willing to do it and stick to it before I re-implement the committee. If it is something you think you can do (send e-cards, stay on top of new member introductions, post birthdays & anniversaries), send me a private message.

I remember when we started it, it was time consuming but for the most part worth it.

I think it's a great idea, but I don't have the time to be on the committee. We could put out a call for volunteers.

If I remember correctly, we all sort of chipped in on the Welcoming Committee. Once some people posted, then more and more joined in.
