[Correction] Help! We Need a New portable roll-down Screen

As you are no doubt aware, the shul has a portable roll-down screen that is used quite a bit for Adult Ed talks and other events to show slides, DVDs, etc. The one we have now is on its last legs, and since budgets are tight, we are polling the community to see if anyone out there has a screen they no longer use. It should be in very good condition so it can stand up to lots of use.
If you have one or have any ideas about getting one cheap, please contact the office or Heshi Olson. Thanks!
