When you arrive, you'll find your popcorn ready for you (thanks to a great group of volunteers).  Then, you will do the following:
  1. You'll need to verify that the order is correct.
  2. Sign Picking Slip stating you received the popcorn.
You will need to pickup your popcorn between 5pm - 6pm.

We need some volunteers to help us divide up the orders.  We will need people from 3:45 - 5:00.  The more people who help the less time it will take.
