Leap Day T-shirts lack sales

On Feb. 1-3, Art Club sold T-shirts for Leap Day. The club has been selling T-shirts every year for holidays such as April Fool’s Day and Arbor Day. Unfortunately, according to club sponsor Mrs. Amy Roesslein, the Leap Day shirts were not a success.

“We had about five to eight T-shirt sales within the three days we sold them. I’m not really sure why we didn’t get a lot of sales this year,” Mrs. Roesslein said. “Leap Day is a day that only comes around every four years, so that’s why we decided to make it our theme for this year’s T-shirts.”

Despite the lack of sales during lunches last week, Art Club plans to continue the sales for the remainder of the week.

“I am going to take orders this week and then we will make the shirts,” Mrs. Roesslein said. “Art Club members will be printmaking the design on the T-shirts. I’m going to make a few extras just in case students decide they want them.”

The T-shirts will be light blue, with green text on them. They will say “Leapin’ into Leap Year 2012” on them and are $8. Those who have purchased the shirts will receive them in a few weeks so that they can be worn on Leap Day, Feb. 29.
