CITY/REGION: Hagenow, Mecklenburg - Vorpommern
MEETUP PLACE: Museum, Lange Str. 79, 19230 Hagenow
DATE: October 1, 2022
I’m quite new to postcrossing and my German is very bad yet. But despite the great fear, I went in search of a place to organize a meeting. It will be held for the first time in the small town of Hagenow. Not much is open on Saturday, including the museum itself will be closed to visitors, but the museum director has kindly agreed to provide a place to sign postcards, as well as conduct an hour-long tour of the city.
I would like to create a chat in whatsapp for the participants of the meeting. Please make your own itinerary. I didn’t use public transport, so I won’t be able to tell you. If you need to stay overnight, check availability at hotels in our city and book in advance.
The maximum number is 15 people.
The cost of the tour and the museum is 60-70 euros (this is a symbolic cost of 5-6 euros per person)
The time is 14:00, but if it’s late, I’ll ask you to reschedule for the morning, for example, 11:00
After the tour, we will return to the museum. We will get acquainted, make postcards and drink tea. We will also play the board game “Eco Heroes”, from which you will learn a lot of interesting things about ecology.
I have been friends with WWF for many years, so I would like to devote the topic of the meeting to the protection of polar bears. At the moment I am preparing postcard layouts for a meeting with the image of a traveling bear.
The cost of a postcard is approximately 0.30 when printing from 100 pieces.
Please feel free to give tips on organizing a meeting from your experience. What you need to have, what kind of office, how do you confirm participation, how do you book the number of postcards, how do you pay, etc. I have never held or attended such meetings. Postcrossing prompted me to overcome the fear of the language barrier and find a place This is a good practice for me, and a great day for you to learn about my city Hagenow.
