Team folding newsletters: Elaine Violette, Agnes Volk, Chris Nugent, Mary McDougale, Peg Glidden, John Koch, Diana Carter (former editor)
On the 23rd of the month a group of volunteers gather at the clubhouse to fold the Royal Palm Social Club newsletter - The Palm Press - and prepare it for distribution. While the newsletter comes from the printer with each newsletter already assembled and folded, we also fold each one lengthwise and wrap it with a rubber band to make it easier to hang on the residents' mailboxes. While this folding is being done, someone (the editor) places the appropriate number of newsletters in individual bags separated by area in the community. These bags then go to the volunteers who deliver them to the residents. It takes about a half hour to do the folding and gathering. This whole process was developed by Diana Carter, the previous editor, and it is well organized and effective. This completes the monthly newsletter cycle.
