LNFI Gear – Update on Orders

****LNFI GEAR UPDATE: The shirts are being printed, but the shop making them is experiencing serious delays because of COVID-19-related operational changes. We are currently expecting the shirts in early May and will communicate a distribution plan at that time. Thank you for your patience!****

LNFI gear is back! Multiple school colors are available in a wide range of sizes. All proceeds from the sale of T-shirts go into the LNFI field trip scholarship fund, which helps defray the cost of field trips for all LNFI students. Thank you for providing our students with excellent field trip opportunities!

If you missed the chance to place an order by March 2, we ordered extras to sell at Kermesse. Stop by the gear table early that evening for the best selection!
