Countdown to Baton Rouge
« on: April 18, 2017, 10:46:47 PM »
Hi Everyone,

In two more days we will be landing in Baton Rouge, LA, and in three we will be starting our copy run. I've been absent lately but more behind the scenes than actual MIA. Hope to come back with loads of photos and stories.

Thanks to all of you for your support!

Margie,

Hope you get a lot of photos at the copy run but are not overwhelmed.

Hi Everyone,

I will have more in the days to come, but right now I am pooped! Will need to get the final count but we probably will have over 2,000 photos and over 100+ people come in.

http://www.wbrz.com/news/volunteers-help-to-restore-flood-damaged-photos/

The reporter on this last one gave the impression it takes us 6-year to restore a photo when it should have meant that is what time frame we told the families they might have to wait.

Thanks Margie, these reports always makes me wish I had been there!
I'm so glad for the lady that will have the photo of her son restored now.

I know you guys are getting hungry for some new photos and I hope by the weekend if not before to have some ready for the distributors. Because of the huge turnout, just getting things set up in PhotoShelter is a real challenge, not to mention cropping and getting them uploaded.

These should keep us busy for a long time.
