Mimeograph Machine

In grade school, I was in charge of the school site council newsletter. The site council was a group of grade school stakeholders - teachers, parents and two students - that made limited decisions on how to spend a small, arbitrary school improvement budget. The newsletter was the mechanism of communicating our decisions to the rest of the students, teachers and parents. As a student representative, I communicated that my constituents requested basketball nets for the bare hoops but it was never done. In fact, I don't think we ever spent a dime, we just discussed endless possibilities. Politically, it was frustrating, but I sure loved that mimeograph machine. I can still smell it.
