Materials Wish List

Below is a list of materials needed for MayDay. Please check back often! We will be adding items as they come up during this year's MayDay build.

You can bring donations to the Avalon Theatre during any workshop time starting April 6, 2019 - Saturdays 9-11am and 1-3pm; Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm. It's a great way to recycle and help build MayDay - thanks!
