***NEW THIS YEAR*** We are asking members to please bring gently used workable calculators to each event. We will ask those in attendance if they need any calculators for their classroom.  All calculators collected will be distributed that night to   those attendees who indicated a need! If no one in attendance is in need  - the donated calculators will be brought to the next MEGSL event.
