Merchandise Sale Update

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 have some items left over from the craft show this weekend. Please see the attached list of what is available. If anyone is interested I will be at the school Wednesday at 2:00pm to do a cash (or check) and carry sale. There aren't a lot of shirts available, but there are quite of bit of hats, scarves, and blankets - all perfect for the pep rally, bonfire, and game!


New Sweatshirt Style: There was a new sweatshirt style offered at the craft show this weekend: charcoal gray crew neck with front pocket (see flyer). If anyone is interested in ordering one let me know, if I have enough interest I will send out an order form. Please note these are more expensive than the normal hoodies we purchase - they are a better brand and heavier fleece. Price is $30/ea.


Please feel free to email merchandise@eahsmusic.org if any questions. Thank you.
