This is very nice. Just wondering if you would be able to scan and email please? My 9 year old daughter does American Junior Red Cross and we're always looking for more interpretive items. Thank you

I can remember turning in coat hangers to the local dry cleaners in exchange for free movie tickets during the Korean War. One can carry a lot of coat hangers on their bicycle handlebars, if necessary. :wink:
