    2. We have finally received our new equipment and automation software, but we are still waiting on installation.

    3. We raised $296.24 for Band of Brothers Northwest.

    4. We started Loud Speaker Lunch Hour on Fridays from 12pm-1pm, where we crank up the tunes and students can hear us outside!
