This is the message I’ve been sending to people who already expressed interest…

Thanks for your interest in the Niagara Falls World Postcard Day meet-up. I look forward to seeing you October 1st at the Lions Club Hall.

I just wanted to reach out about a couple of things to help me better organize the event that is growing to be something big and exciting!

The hall has a fee, so each person is asked to contribute $10 to cover

You will need to bring your own lunch, snacks & drinks, but all of those things are OK to consume in the Hall

Please see designs in the Forum listing (below)… Card #1 blue-ish design, Card #2 green-ish design and the Official design winner. cost of cards is $0.25-$0.50 to cover cost of printing.

Postcards are available NOW
there are some of these three designs still available
Please send a message Shelopolis (me) to order cards ASAP.

Saturday night dinner reservations will be made shortly!
Everyone is welcome, but I do require RSVP to make a reservation for the correct number of guests. (I will bring any pre-ordered cards to dinner so you can organize ahead of the meeting).

So far, I have about 30 guests from 4 countries… 2 provinces, 4 states… can’t wait to celebrate World Postcard Day!


I will be attending!

I plan to be there!


Welcome to Postcrossing @Heydee lovely to meet you!
All meet-ups are a little different, but here it’s usually a bunch of us gathered in the hall to sign some specially designed cards and chat about all things postal related. Maybe we could do a pot-luck lunch this year…
I’ll try to have a little more information about activities closer to the event… I do a little draw for prizes to celebrate World Postcard Day and our get together. some of us stay over in Niagara Falls & hunt down the cheapest tourist cards around!
Look forward to meeting you in October!

We will be arriving to Canada -to Toronto to be exact- from Finland, for the first time ever just one day before this meet-up. I would really want to attend this meet-up. I’ve been a Postcrossing member for 3,5 months, but I’ve not attended to any meet-up. Yet. We haven’t booked any accommodation yet, but very soon we’ll be on it. I wanted to ask if it’s possible you to count me in, although no reservation for a place to stay, yet again :slightly_smiling_face:?

Best regards,

So far, these are two designs voted to be favourites!

Will be ordering after the results from the official design contest are revealed.

I prefer to take orders ahead so I have clear # for the order … Cards will be sold AT COST, which will depend on final quantity ordered.


Perfect! Thanks a lot! :star_struck:

Hi from Kansas! I decided to take a long weekend and head up this way to catch a baseball game in Toronto and some other history stuff on a bucket list. I’m looking forward to another Postcrossing meetup!
