  Would like to contact Linda Hillier, Des Moines, IA. I attended 3 of the early conventions - one at which Jack Lawrence performed "Linda"--what a great convention that was! I believe it was in Cedar Rapids, IA. Also went to Des Moines twice-duh I lived in Adel at the time. Have since divorced and remarried to one hunky wonderful California guy that I actually grew up with in Johnston, Iowa! Who says there's no romance after 50! Would enjoy hearing from anyone who may remember me. I sold t- shirts/ad specialties when I was working back in the '80's and 90's. Lotza fun at convention. Especially remember the sheep named Linda at Living History Farms in Des Moines, Iowa. All for now. Give me an "e"; My website may not be up yet--I am just starting a business selling on eBay. Cheers from the Central Coast of California. Linda Kay

  My college roommate notified me about the Linda's. Her name is Linda also. Am interested but it's late and I do need sleep. Will try to get back in touch. This sounds like fun!

  Want to know more or listing of members. I went to college with five Lindas(and middle names - southern double names). It would be interesting to see if any of them are members.

  Thank you for another wonderful convention in the Wisconsin Dells. Also thank you to Linda Hall from Kentucky who sent me a birthday card on August 6 as well as the Linda Club for their card. It is neat getting cards from others. I have been to all 16 conventions and hope it will keep on going.

  I was informed of your organization's existance by a Linda's husband who had been e-corresponding with my husband on the ALLIS CHALMERS message board. Since the bulk of your activities seem to take place in the mid-west, I don't know if my being a member of the "Lindas" would pay. I wouldn't mind e-eaves dropping, though. Is that possible?

  Wow, what a weekend! I was one of the newbies with the group...yes, I will be back! Fun, friendly, goofy, spontaneous, spiritual, creative Linda's. Great food, gorgeous countryside, impressive circus world museum grounds/exhibits/performances, and Sunday morning songs. A big THANK YOU to the Linda who relived her circus memories while she gave us new ones. It's great to be able to "be a kid again". Coming home reminds me of the 3-day fall quilt retreat I took 10 years ago after my father had died that spring. When my husband drove me back home from a weekend of stitching which included an impromptu quilt put together for a young quilting mom undergoing chemo (she died shortly thereafter), jabbering with like-minded ladies, and being served meals, I was stunned to walk back into my kitchen, even with my 5 year old, husband, and cats...the silence was deafening! Home from Wisconsin, I'm having to adjust to not calling everyone Linda. Those of us in the Des Moines area will certainly have to get together before the next annual event, bring along other Lindas who couldn't make the 2003 event, chat and show our photos/scrapbook pages. Urbandale Library offers their meeting rooms (with kitchenettes equipped with fridge/microwave/sink) free, and the library café has sandwiches/soup as well as decadent desserts for a spur-of-the-moment get together. I need something like this more often. Wouldn't it be something to get 150+ Lindas again like at the first event? At the same time I signed up for L.I.N.D.A., I also signed up for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources' "Becoming an Outdoors Woman" weekend for this September. I have always wanted to shoot skeet and learn to fish, and by golly, I will do it with a bunch of other women of all ages in a matter of weeks. Maybe I'll meet someone named Linda, and I have those LINDA cards to pass along. I had always wanted to attend LINDA in the past, but never made connection somehow. Woo-hoo, what fun! Linda-Sue

  I attended two conventions years ago and had a great time. I have had my consignment shop "Simply Linda's" for 15 years now. I have met lots of Linda's over the years. Linda's are great shoppers!

  A terrific idea to have a club for Lindas, Since it means "beautiful" in Spanish we should all be aware that we are beautiful people. Linda D.

  Hello, I was out on an outing with my residents (Im a activity director at a local health care center). We were at Dairy Queen and a gentleman was ordering his icecream when he overheard my residents, all nine of them, saying my name. "Linda, here's my change". "Linda, where is the bathroom"? And so on. Thats when the gentleman asked, "I bet your name is Linda, right"? I said yes and he handed me a card. The card said L.i.n.d.a.! he said his wife is named Linda and I should check out the web site. I was amazed by what he was saying. So I came to see the site and it is really cool. Thank you for giving my day a lift.

  Hi Linda's from all around I love the Linda Group It proves how Linda are connected how many names do you know doing something like we do!!! GREAT BUNCH I look forward to and enjoy the anuil get together Who else could pull it off but a bunch of linda's When I tell people at first they sometimes laugh then when I say so start one with your name and they stop and think and say it won't work. They aren't willing to make a difference there lose. Thanks to a few great Linda's we are fun, active and thriving group. I Say so why does ours work???? Because we have people who care. People who want to make a diffence and change things. People who enjoy people and making new friends. I was lucky enough to be one of the six Linda Rockets this year and it was fun, sense I was up in front I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the Rockets if anyone has one and would like to share I would be glad to pay for one. I told my fanily about our fun and they say it sounds like we have toooo much fun YES WE Do and I can't waite until next years.

  Linda Rose, You're doing a great job on this website. Thanks for all your work. We all appreciate it. I've enjoyed attending all of the conventions and am looking forward to next year in Cedar Rapids for our 15th year. I know the Lindas organizing the 2002 Convention will do a great job and what a fun theme to work with! I love being a part of this great group of ladies. It's always an enjoyable time, and being the Sec/Treas of this group is an extra added bonus for me. See you all next year!

  Convention '2001: A LINDA Odyssey' was another great event. What a fantastic group we are that once a year we can get together and have such a good time. A BIG THANK YOU to the committee and all participants for making it memorable. I'm already jazzed for 2002's 'LINDA Luau' in Cedar Rapids. Let's make it THE BEST!
