Name Badges

 Attention all members,

At the July meeting of the WVARC, it was brought up to get name badges made for the membership.  The badges will be blue with white lettering.  The badges will have "Whitewater Valley Amateur Radio Club" your first name, and your call sign.  They have the option of either a pin attachment or magnet attachment in order to be worn on clothing.  The cost of the badges are $17.00 each ($16 for the badge and $1 for the pin/magent attachment) through Sign Man of Ohio.  We would like to know who all would like to have a badge made.  We will make a final decision on the badges at the August meeting.  

If you are interested in getting a badge, please let me know via email:  AC9SZ.MC@GMAIL.COM, prior to the August meeting.
