FINAL SOS 2013 All Membership & Volunteer Meeting
Pick up Postcards, Posters, and more

Sun., Mar. 24 | 1pm - 3pm
Mad Oyster Studios
2 Bradley Street (parking in back off Pearl St.)

Come pick up postcards, posters, see templates for personalizing, preview the mapbook and more. SOS has event-wide postcards you can mail or put out to promote the event. We also will have templates you can download off the website, soon. We'll show you how these work.

This year we're doing a large postering effort lead by Emily Garfield and Lucy Nadeau. You can pick up posters at this meeting and they will keep track of where you'll be putting them to avoid duplicate efforts. We'll be able to preview the mapbook pdf if time allows, too. And you can sign up with Sarah Carlson to help get the mapbooks distributed.

We'll have tasty pizza for everyone. You bring a refreshing beverage or six to share.
We're expecting a large group for this meeting, so if you can also bring some folding chairs, please do.
