New members may want to have a more permanent name badge than those the membership committee provides. Magnetic name badges are available for $7 from Alberta Husch. These are great for Newcomers meetings, but since they don’t include the club name you may find other occasions for them as well. To order, contact Alberta at 243-4168. Let her know exactly how you’d like your name to appear.
