It is imperative that we get as much information in early to facilitate the printing of the booklets for each attendee .The cut off date will be April 28th- any items after that date will be gratefully received but not be printed in the catalogue. He also broke down the results of 2007 that showed what percentage of profit came from donation gift, cash and certificates.
