We look at purchasing options as well. If it is donated to us, I will be happy to give you a proof of donation for tax purposes. Remember, we are a non-profit organization.
Plumes - I have been in contact with our uniform providers about the plumes for the helmets. They have told me that they may arrive this week. Cross your fingers that this is the case. We may have a helmet rehearsal on Thursday. We will give you more info as it comes our way.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
