These materials included financial / budgetary information and receipts, duplicate materials, insurance policies, and mass-produced travel brochures. Additionally, green fabric highlander poster, cardboard cutout of male highlander, base for an unknown second place grade IV award, and partial pen holder were removed to be disposed of according to donor wishes.
