YAAPO updates and Twitter

Hi all, I want to provide you a quick update. First, if you didn’t make it to our last YAAPO meeting the minutes have been posted to our website In a quick review, the following expenditures were brought to a vote and approved: Up to $2,800 towards the repair/replacement of one gym heater; Up to $2,000 towards the purchase and installation of outdoor lighting; $500 towards new gym equipment; $150 for flowers to be delivered for the former student who recently passed away.

As of today: The gym heater was purchased and installed (Arthur Academy purchased the second heater). Mr. Arthur has placed the order for both the gym equipment and the outdoor lighting. I will provide an update on both of those as soon as I have some info.

Also, I am now on Twitter. You can follow me @YAAPO_Matt I will use this to provide updates and important YAAPO related information. That is all for now, hope to see you all at the Spring Fling next Saturday.
