Mercedes Pens to Appear at Sonoma Family Expo April 9, 2010

Recycled Pen Donated from Grace School, NY NY
I will be appearing at the Sonoma Family Expo with the Mercedes Pens Friday April 9th, 2010 at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, from 3:30 – 8:oo pm. I will be there collecting old pens and making custom pen recycling bins for those of you who want to put your business on the pen recycling location map.

I also received a third installment of recycled pens from Grace Church School in New York City collected by their wonderful, amazing and dedicated Green Team. I took this shot early this morning as the sun was coming through my kitchen window. Thanks guys for the Crayola Markers.

Fashion Barbie Pen Arrives from New York

Fashion Barbie Pen Arrives from New YorkHere is another massive box of pens from the Green Team at Grace Church School in New York. When I opened the box up I found a pen I had never seen before, a Barbie Doll Pen. After surviving her long journey in a dark box filed with messy crayola marker pens she took so time to enjoy the sun. This time our one legged wooden model took some time off to sit with her and pose sitting on the box. Her journey is complete and will become part of the Legendary Mercedes Pens in some way sometime soon. The pens also came with a crayola stained note, I guess the red one still works.

Pen Recycling Barrel Now at City Life in Santa Rosa

City Life community center has a for a long time now graciously allowed me to have pens mailed here at 2425 Mendocino Ave in Santa Rosa. They were even more gracious when I asked them if I could put one of my pen recycling barrels in the front lobby. Now not only can you mail pens here but you can if you want go down and drop them off your self. They have been very supportive with my Million Pen Drive so I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

City life community center is a very unique place, it used to be a Heald college location and now its a place where many organizations meet and hold meetings during the week. They have ballet and martial arts classes, 5-6 churches meet there such as City Life Fellowship , Giving Tree Church and others. Hope Works is also located there, a non profit organization that is gang intervention and inmate reentry program. Its a great place to find great information about local events and meetings that are happening all through out the week.

The New Pen Donation Address is:
The Pen Guy – P.O.Box 994 – Forestville, CA 95436
