Many of the awards are based on information on the club monthly reports. Please make sure that your club is up-to-date on it's monthly reports. I would hate to have to tell clubs that they did not get an award because their monthly reports were not submitted.
Purchasing District Clothing
As we know, the only time in the past that we’ve been able to purchase District and Foundation clothing such as shirts, vests, jackets etc., has been at District Conventions or Conferences. We are trying to make it easier for all members to be able to purchase these articles anytime during the year. We may also use the Yankiwanian to have special sales during the year.
During the coming year we will be updating our ladies line with better colors and sizes. We hope you will take advantage of the new service by ordering by mail or on line. You may use the order form or email or fax your orders to District and foundation apparel.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE CONVENTION IN HYANNIS, AND I HOPE EVERYONE IS, WE WILL HAVE OUR TABLES SET UP THERE. SO BE PREPARED AND BRING YOUR CA$H OR CHECK OR CREDIT CARD, YES I SAID CREDIT CARD BECAUSE WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO CREDIT CARDS AND WE HAVE A LOT OF NEW CLOTHING, MEN’S AND LADIES!! WE ALSO HAVE NEW CANVAS BAGS, APRONS AND MORE!
