[6] SILC Year Book: Offsetting the costs

As you are aware, the schools charge anywhere from $25 to $75 for a school year book. We are trying not to charge for the yearbook at SILC and succeeding all these years. In order to offset the cost of printing, we are soliciting some limited number of advertisements from the local businesses (the advertisement should be recommended by one of the SILC families and approved by editorial committee for inclusion).  If you know of any business interested to place an ad, please contact Raj Menon or Shiv Bhatia for details.
