It was discussed and voted on unanimously (Siobhan Martin made motion, Kristen Bernier seconded) to update T-shirt pricing to $12 per T-shirt regardless of size (youth/adult) because our cost for the T-shirts is the same.  Hats will remain at $15 per hat.

We need to arrange for a cash box for sales.  Dan Harper has offered to keep table/tent/t-shirts in his barn for members to access when selling in the future


We need an Excel Spreadsheet to track color and size sales.
