Chris will ask Jamie Miller if our old large flags and bases could be stored in the FFAM trailer. Jessica lives the closest to Jamie to have access to the flags as needed.

Logo on the canopy: The company declined to do the logo due to the logo costing more than the canopy. Chris will check to see if there is a banner in the flag tote, to use on the canopy as needed.
