Walgreen’s sponsored a flu shot clinic here at Royal Palm today. They provided flu shots to residents at no co-pay cost; all we had to do was show up and bring our ID and insurance card. We just needed a minimum of 25 to keep it free. Elaine does not like needles, however. She shielded her eyes while I got my shot and then Annie Wallace had fun with her by offering to hold her while she got hers. It was a fun scene, as you can see in the photo, and all those in the room got quite a charge from it! The lady administering the shots did not quite know what to make of it.

My projects for today included printing the tickets for the upcoming Halloween Dinner here in Royal Palm. I did it the easy way – I bought perforated Avery ticket stock (Avery # 16154) and used the Avery online design tool to customize the tickets. It was fairly easy to do. I had to employ some trial-and-error, especially with the ticket numbering function, but finally got it all the way I wanted. The ticket stock is perforated for ten tickets per page and each ticket has two parts – a ticket and a stub. I printed eight pages – 80 tickets – and they will go on sale starting tonight at Bingo.

It was a busy and hectic day today! I started off putting on the finishing touches to the Royal Palm newsletter, then took it to UPS for printing around 8:30 this morning. When they brought it up on the screen there we noted a problem with the front page; the masthead is supposed to have a faded-back photo of the entry sign with the words The Palm Press superimposed near the top. However, the photo was not faded, so the name did not show up well. I headed back home and worked on that, finding that I had not used the correct PDF printing routine to produce the file I took to the printer. Once I used the correct driver the front page came out properly. Then back to UPS again. It was a busy morning for them with only one person on duty, so it took a while before the project was a go. I got home around 10:00. Continue reading Hectic day. Newsletter.
