I'll be attending after 2pm. As for organization, I come across a fair
amount of clear storage containers at M.E.C.C.A. Would clear shoebox-sized
storage totes be helpful in anyway? Any other sizes?

the machine, an ironing board along and a small amount of materials for EMS
members. If the space under the stairs is still available I think that would
be a good location.
