Hi Tara,

Selling these coins at our Disability Awareness Day would be great.
Howwever, I'm concerned with how long it will take for some of the
coins to get here because when you order them, it doesn't always
happen like that. We need to make sure we are on top of this if we're
going to sell 2000 coins by November. I would appreciate it if
everybody who is involved in this devision to reply to this e-mail as
soon as possible because I would really like us to be on top of this.
Thanks and have a wonderful week.

-Michael
