Thanks again to all of the exhibitors, volunteers, and visitors who were able to come out yesterday! We’ve still got some posters and shirts leftover, so if you’d like to grab one (10 for shirts and 1-10 donation for posters) you can either send us an email at and we can send them to you, or you can pick them up from Have Company on Division Ave. ¬†Also, a huge thank you to the DAAC for helping us pay off the rest of the rental fee.
