II. Red Signs

The signs have been distributed and project is complete

[Post meeting note from Tosh: Yesterday, Garima and I drove up our neighborhood to drop off the last red sign at one of our neighbor's place, which is way up at high in the neighborhood. As we went up, we passed our nearest neighbor's red sign, and then it was: "Oh, there's one! ... and another one! ... and another one!" all the way up the hill. They really stand out well. Love it!]
