Old Business - Brian helped out at the Noah's Arc Thrift Shop clean up on Sunday March 12, getting first dibs on their greatest donations!
New Business - discussed fancy, eye catching, professional looking brochures vs. cheap nice photocopy-able brochures. Cost from Sir Speedy is ~$280 for 1000 of the gorgeous brochures designed by Salter and Associates. Great price, but still uses up ~1/3 of our total budget - quite a lot for one project that doesn't contribute to the community. No decision finalized.
That's it! See you at Adopt A Highway!!!!!!
