Name Badges

Anyone wishing to order a name badge, please contact Mary Berger at 233-1411. We have special pricing at $6.50 each if we order at least three at a time. They are nice badges with the magnetic backing. It is professional looking and shows we mean business when we are working one of our fundraisers and are wearing our name badge.

All members and extra volunteers are encouraged to wear a Women’s Division t-shirt while working some of our summer fundraisers. Sizes L, XL, and 2XL are available at no charge. The t-shirts are part of our publicity efforts to let everyone know who we are while we are working. Please contact Sherry Bellin at 303-1462 or sebellin@sbcglobal.net
