Librarian Prom

Amanda working on a flyer, need to get the word out

Amanda will send out the flyer as a PDF, we are all going to post, distribute and help with advertising.

Alyssa working on alcohol license, Thea following up to make sure it gets completed

Alcohol being sold, to pay for the alcohol, and a small profit

Budget: under $100

Can’t afford catering, talking about cheap options: Thea has connection to Organic Oregon, that make donations of fruits and veggies, then also getting baguettes and spread. Hot food considered not practical
