Next CREW 288 Meeting on March 3, 2014



Keep the date! March 3rd is the next CREW 288 meeting!

We are collecting money for our CREW 288 mandatory crew uniforms with CREW 288 logo embroidery on front left side. These will look very sharp. Cost for crew polo uniforms is 25.00 each.

Crew activity shirts cost 15.00 each. These shirts are made of a wicking material, good for all types of outdoor activities. They will be printed with a CREW 288 logo on the front and graphics on the back.

Payments in cash or check will be collected. It is important that you fill out your shirt size and how many shirts you want.

We will be wrapping up the orders at close of the meeting in anticipation for the crew to wear them by the next months crew meeting and activities.

More announcements will be made soon for our coming March 3rd meeting.
