Lkg For Resort/timeshare Advice
You might want to look at a site called (I think that's the name) that lists timeshares for sale and for rent. It might at least give you an idea of what's for sale and what people are asking. Good luck; I suspect there are lots of timeshares on the market, and that the competition is rough. If so, your son might want to list it as a rental and possibly recoup some of his payments.

Wanted: Help With Mailing Labels Dymo Label Maker

Does anyone currently use a Dymo Label Maker for making mailing labels? Someone has asked me to assist with a 300+ mailing, said that the names and addresses are currently in a data base and now need to make the mailing labels. I wasn't sure if there was a way to connect the two and have them print. Another person said we would have to enter each label separately. Please call me if you can offer some help. Thanks. Lorie 545-4602 (UMass)

Lkg For Resort/timeshare Advice

My son was talked into buying a timeshare about a year / year and a half ago in Florida. It's a beautiful resort, but the sale was for a one week stay every other year. Between the payment ea month and maintenance fee he's at a point where he is not interested in it anymore and looking for a way to sell it or get out of the deal. Does anyone have suggestions on what to do. He still owes money on it so I'm not sure how a sale would work. Do real estate agencies help with this sort of thing?

Thanks for your assistance. Lorie

Scarf Donations For Those Need
A consignment shop in my town started collecting scarves for those in need. Right after Christmas for the last few years, they gather up the donations and "Scarf Bomb" the town of Athol. The scarves are tied to the lamp-posts, benches and street signs, for those in need to claim. Last year 100 were donated and all were claimed. Please help us keep families in need warm this winter.

Please look in your winter storage, or if you would like to purchase and donate a new scarf, it will be gratefully accepted. All donations (unless new with tags) are requested to be freshly laundered and placed in a plastic bag. Each scarf does not have to be individually bagged, you can bag multiples together.

I have agreed to reach out to our campus community for donations and am volunteering my personal time to trasnport them and assist in tying the donated scarves up to be claimed.

If you are interested in donating, I can arrange pickup from any UMass mail room over the next five weeks. I would like to receive all donations no later than Jan 5, 2017 for distribution later that weekend. Any donations made on the UMass campus should be placed in a tied-off walmart or big-y type plastic bag, with a note reading "Project Scarf - ATTN Mail Services" stapled to the bag. If you are part of the 5 college community and would like to donate, please contact me to make arrangements to get the donations to me.

I am hoping with help from the campus community we can double the number of scarves for this year!

Thanks in advance for helping families in need keep warm this winter...

Looking For Horse Barn Rent
Looking for barn to rent with room for 5-12 horses (stalls or run-ins or a combination) in the Five College area of Western Mass. Would like to be in an entire private facility, not a block of stalls in an existing business. This would be the personal horses of a group of mature, capable people that want a quiet facility to work out of and not do client boarding or lessons. Can provide excellent references.
