Dance and Drill Team

At the banquet we were short 1 overylay.  One of the O/L gave one of the newbies her overlay just for the event.  Afterwards we asked everyone to return ALL the overlays.  I ordered 5 new overlays.  The new overlays came in but now I am short 3 overlays.  I think a few members accidentally took their overlay home.  Please check to see if that happened and bring me the overlay. You will not be in trouble.  You will be helping those 3 girls who do not have overlays now.
