No surplus govt property at the giveaways, Joe. They come from my personal budget/closet with an occasional CD donation from a singer, though most of the CD's come from my purchases. That probably makes me the "crazy Eddie" of chanteydom :-). The main idea is to encourage people to learn songs, hear how recorded musicians sing them, and then bring them to the sings. As well as hopefully inspiring them to dig deeper into the traditions for their own knowlege. I started adding other misc. items for the special occasions, saving the juicer and the scanner for the big 25th anniversary sing. I throw in the occasional gag gift, too, just for fun.
