2013 Badge Day - Wear Your Letters On Your Heart

From the NPC - " On Monday, March 4, these women — who number in the millions — will celebrate International Badge Day during National Women’s History Month. On that day, all of us will honor our separate and distinct Greek-letter affiliations by wearing our badges or letters.
It’s a day set aside to acknowledge successful women around the globe, whether they are U.S. senators or university freshmen working for humanitarian aid in far-away continents."

Our APH schedules a dinner out every year on Badge Day. My favorite part is that we pass our badges around the table to admire the beautiful designs of all the groups.

Yes, one downside to owning that Dyer is that none of my other badges seem to come up in rotation much. I must find a way to wear badges more often.

That's a great idea. I'll pass it along to Tucson Alumnae Panhellenic.

We have an Alumnae Association meeting, and I guess no one checked with the NPC, as we're to wear special t-shirts!

I guess I'll wear my ring pin?

Are you a young group? Middle-aged eyes and older, arthritic fingers might have trouble pinning those badges on again (to say nothing of getting them pinned on straight)!

Haha! No, we run the gamut from 20s to 60s, with a pretty equal distribution. I don't think there are any that are older than 60s though.

I hadn't thought about that. Will have to watch this year what people do. I think last year I wore my pin, then simply stuck it in the pillow (I still have it 20+ years later!) at the end? I can't remember.

I wore my pin to church today, since I telecommute and have an alumnae meeting tomorrow night. We're to wear t-shirts. If I'm to be active in this chapter, I think we need a little more NPC love!
