With the help of a grant that we received through our local Education Service Center.  We purchased a four-color silk screen machine.  The purpose of the purchase was to teach students how to start and run a small business.  As part of the project, the students researched a learned about the cost of materials, inventory, and equipment.  Their first run of shirts was for a local 6x6 Amphibious group.  The shirts were an easier one-color ink logo.  Future plans include the purchase of more equipment so outside vendors will no longer be needed.
