Online Sale Update: Due to shipping delays the orders are not done yet. It will likely be another couple of weeks, I will keep you all posted and let you know when they can be picked up.

In-stock Merchandise: We still have a few shirts, black beanie hats, varsity striped scarves, and red embroidered blankets in stock - all perfect Christmas gifts for Rover fans! If anyone is interested please email me at the address below and we can make arrangements for you to get the items.

New Sweatshirt Style: A few of you reached out asking to order the charcoal crew neck sweatshirt with the front pocket, the order form is attached. Order forms are due no later than Friday, December 10. Orders can be paid by cash or check made payable to IMA.

LAST CHANCE for JACKETS!! The red windbreaker student jacket has been discontinued by the manufacturer. There are still some quantities available, but not many. Therefore we would like to offer one last chance for students to get them. We are including the black pullover as well in case that is also discontinued by next fall. Orders may be placed online at the IMA website, or by the attached order form. All orders must be received no later than Friday, December 10.

Please note: Crew Neck and Jacket orders will be placed with our vendor on Monday, December 13. They are not expected to be delivered in time for Christmas, so please keep that in mind when planning your order.
