  • Hi Alice:

    I recognize that my timing is late but if I was to send some gift material intended for the PSL 2016 group, how many items should I ship to Don in Canmore? I reviewed the PSL Forum membership list, facilitators and groups and it looks like I should aim for approximately 35 items – could you confirm?

  • That sounds great. People have used various methods/numbers in the past but the most common is to put items out on a shared table where people pick and choose. Thanks!

  • Hi Again Alice:

    I was hoping to upload our “Bears” PowerPoint presentation to the Bears Group page but is seems that I can only add photos, video links and others links to the page right now. Is it still possible to add our PowerPoint presentation to webpage?

  • Hi Murray. Good idea. Have you tried loading it as pdf? If that doesn’t work, I will dig into the settings to see if I can figure out what the problem is. Or just send it to me as is and I’ll try if you prefer.
