This is not what the pamphlet is going to look like. And I know this isnt how you spell most of your names.
BUT THIS IS FINAL CHECK.
MAKE SURE IF YOU DONATED OR ARE VENDING YOUR NAME IS LISTED.
Pretty sure I got that covered but check. If is is listed wrong and we havent previously spoken you should send me your name as you would like it to appear in the pamphlet.
What I dont have is a lot of your logos.
I'm only working on this tonight so it is a good time for a check in.
MAKE SURE IF YOU HAVE A LOGO YOU SEND IT TO ME.

We are meeting at the park at 11am for set up!!

Me and Mr. Talley will be assigning spots at 11 sharp. If you are late your spot will be preserved but it may not be where you want.
