Members Only Tote Bag Pre-Sale

OGS is now selling totes bags. After some research and consideration, the Fundraising Committee has decided on these two styles.
 
Style BG406 is available in 8 colors and will have the attached crossword on one side.
 
Style B0750 is available in 16 colors and will have “I Seek Dead People” on one side and the 5-generation pedigree chart on the other. The pedigree chart can be filled in with an ultrafine point Sharpie.
 
We are offering our members a chance to preorder the style(s) and color(s) of their choice at a reduced price. This will only be offered once. You may buy as many as you want for anyone you want. See attachment for the Styles, colors and graphics.
 
You may choose the color, style and either black or white printing only.
 
Delivery time is about 3 weeks after the end of the promotion.
 
Members who preorder will pay just $17.50 plus $5.00 shipping and handling if you want them shipped to you. Regular cost will be $20.00 plus shipping and handling.
 
All orders must be received at OGS by Wednesday September 27th. Pick up will be Saturday October 21st 10 AM to 4 PM.
 
We will be ordering extras of the most popular colors and they will be for sale at the Library and the Seminars.
 
If you are interested in ordering of the Tote Bags without any graphics you may buy one for $12.50, plus applicable shipping and handling.

Mo's Clam Chowder Fundraiser - For Everyone Not Just Members
 
This is the second year that OGS is participating in the Mo’s Clam Chowder Fundraiser. It is a clam chowder base and comes in a 1quart bag. It is not frozen and will keep for up to 3 weeks in the fridge or can be frozen for later use. This is a great way for you and your friends to help support the Society and get something good in return.
 
Mo's Clam Chowder is an excellent choice for a cold winter evening, a rainy afternoon, Christmas Eve, and New Years Eve dinners. Or something to simmer on the stove while feeding those Trick – or- Treaters. All you have to do is add whole milk and heat!

It is very easy to do. Print the attached flyer and make copies to share with friends and co-workers; attach to an email to friends and family and share on your Facebook page.
 
Fill out the bottom of the form, tear/cut off and mail it in with your check. Remember to keep the top part so you will remember when to do the pickup. You have until October 7th to get your order in.
 
You can order for family who live outside of the area and either keep until you see them or ship it using dry ice with either USPS, UPS or FedEx. They all have information on how to do this. Go to search and ask “can I ship dry ice” and they will tell you how to do it.
 
Please remember to share this flyer with family and friends. If you live outside the area but have friends and family that live near Eugene PLEASE share with them. Even at meetings you go to. The more that is ordered the more we make to help run the library.
 
Thank you for your support.
