GoodBears for Dec. 6 - Dave Craig

Greg Neaveill, Mr. GoodBear since 1982, contacted the Pekin Hospital to discuss GoodBears distribution. It seems that over the past few weeks, AMBUCS have gone to 4 North only to find that someone has already given out the GoodBears. We have been assured that this will be remedied. As a reminder, GoodBears and Cards are stored at Deverman Advertising. To replenish the stock at PH, just contact Matt Deverman at 346-1194. He will set out GoodBears and Get Well Cards for someone to take up to PH 4 North.


No report at this time.
