      PHOTOBUCKET CHANGES WILL AFFECT OUR FORUM   07/13/2017

      Photobucket has changed their rules of usage. They are not allowing embedded photos to forums with the simple accounts all of us at GALS have. The mods are really annoyed - Photobucket wants $39.99 A MONTH which has to be paid in advance in one sum of $399!!! Can you imagine? Some of us have an account that should allow us to have our photos 'hot linked' as they call it, through December 2018.   There are alternative services, but they all are charging, too. This will mean the end of our avatars, signatures and images of Gerry that we're so fond of sharing in our posts.   Image Shack will still allow sharing, but they are charging for that service, although not as much as Photobucket.   The images cannot be hosted by GALS as that would drive up the cost of hosting, which we already struggle to pay.   We're looking into alternatives.   To find out more about the issue:  http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/categories/200056995-Sharing-and-Linking   http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010128088-What-users-are-affected-by-the-changes-to-our-3rd-Party-Hosting-policies- If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,

Service Project at Shade Tree

34 posts in this topic

One of the most fulfilling events of our 2010 Convention was the work day at The Shade Tree Shelter. All of us brought back memories that will last us for a long time.

The Shade Tree Video

(These are some of the precious children of the Shade Tree Shelter with GALS volunteers, 2010)

Now we get to do it again this year. Our service day will be on Saturday at 11:00. Marlene, the director of the Shade Tree, wants us to watch the kids during a showing of Nim's Island (it's never too early to introduce the wee ones to Gerry!) We will also need volunteers to serve lunch and whatever else Marlene needs us to do. We need to get a head count to see how many vehicles we are going to need for transportation to and from the facility. Sign up on this thread. Also, if you will have a vehicle and would like to volunteer as a driver, please let me know how many people you can carry. Additional details will be forthcoming.

Vegas is always fun, but let's also do something from the heart!

Hey, Suzie, you may want to check with Sporran. I think she's driving in and will have a van (not 100% sure tho)...

Hey, it's just a thought, but does the Hilton possibly have a courtesy van? :confused: A lot of hotels do. If so, maybe they could help us out.
