FRIENDSHIP CARDS

Won't You Be Our Neighbor?
 
Before you retired, you used to attend business meetings all the time.  And when you met a new, potential client, customer, or contractor, all you had to do was hand them a business card and ask for one in return.  Well, things haven't changed that much.  Here in The Villages, we do almost the same thing when we meet someone new, whether it be on the golf course, in the bowling alley, tennis court, bocce court, wood shop, in Publix, well, you get the idea.  But now, it's customary to ask for a "Friendship Card."  Basically, it's the same thing, except the cards are now about you.  You can create your own, get them printed at any print shop (e.g., Staples), or go on-line and get the free ones from Vista.com. (Neh!  They probably cost you a few bucks now.)

As you can see below, it's fun to get creative (if you have that ability).  The Chronicle will help you pass yours along if you'd like.  If you'll give me a card, I'll post it here.  However, it's in no particular order (un-sorted) but it does create a nice looking phonebook of our readers.  (And don't forget to get me a replacement if you change anything.)

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (often shortened to simply Mister Rogers) is an American half-hour children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003). The series originated in 1963 as Misterogers on CBC Television, and was later debuted in 1966 as Misterogers' Neighborhood on the regional Eastern Educational Network (EEN, a forerunner of today's American Public Television), followed by its US network debut on February 19, 1968, and it aired on NET and its successor, PBS, until August 31, 2001. The series is aimed primarily at preschool ages 2 to 5, but has been stated by PBS as "appropriate for all ages". Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was produced by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, public broadcaster WQED and Rogers' non-profit production company Family Communications, Inc.; previously known as Small World Enterprises prior to 1971, the company was renamed The Fred Rogers Company after Rogers' death.

The series could be seen in reruns on most PBS stations until August 31, 2007, when it began to be removed by various PBS stations, and then permanently removed by PBS after August 29, 2008 from their daily syndicated schedule. Despite this, a number of stations have chosen to continue airing the reruns independently of the PBS feed.

The song "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" was written by Fred Rogers in 1967 and was used as the opening theme for each episode of the show.  It has become the standard for the "Friendship Cards" page in the Chronicle.

Editor's Note:  Sometimes pages get copied from past weeks (like this one) and only have their date changed.  Unfortunately, the previous copy I grab may not have all the updates that were made.  Be sure to check and send me an e-mail about the error......Thanks.  editor@witherspoonpath.com

Another Note:  New and Improved Page 7 . . . cards were put into a table making it easier to add or remove cards and all the cards were made the same size (580 pixels x about 320 pixels) with a 1 pixel border.  This border helps the white cards stand out on a white background.  They also have a 2 pixel spacing minimum (top, bottom, right and left).
