ein neues T-Shirt Design??

First, thanks to Mary Grayson for updating the website. Yes, the service project is underway, thanks to Mrs. O'Quinn for allowing us to assist her. German Club members: contribute to those boxes in your English classes! Contribute multiple times. And tell your friends to do the same. After the collection is complete, we'll help Mrs. O'Quinn's Junior Class officers pack the care packages up.

Now, the t-sirts. We need t-shirts! I attempted a design. Let's go with a black t-shirt again. On the front of the shirt, either smallish in the upper corner of the shirt, or larger and centered (I personally prefer the former) would be this image:

Then on the back, a reminder of the great historical personages who changed the world using the German language:

What do you think? Let me know. I want to get this design to Body Billboards in Durham, the folks who made our t-shirts last year, for an estimate on cost, etc. Vote to the left on this design. Let's unify and wear these shirts with pride, people! If we act fast we can possibly get them before German Day.

Alles Gute!

Service Project Success and T-shirt Troubles

It looks like we're tying up the loose ends we discussed at our January 14th meeting. Thank you to everyone who attended on Wednesday! We finally got our service project off the ground with the help of Mrs. O'Quinn. The project, Love Our Troops, is intended to show the troops we care by sending them items they need just in time for Valentine's Day. A really really big thank you is in order for everyone who carried collection boxes all over the school. If you couldn't make it to the meeting, you can still help us by finding the Love Our Troops collection box in your English class and donating something. We also put up bright pink flyers around the school, which should be hard to miss.

Now all we need is a T-shirt design. If no one submits a design soon, we're going to go with a simple design that gets the job done. If you'd like something with more pizazz (or more cartoon animals or German flags or whatever), then submit a design!
