I wore my badge with my shiny new Crescent of Epsilon Pi guard that I was awarded at Convention this summer. Nobody said a word...lol. I did realize, as I was putting it on, that I have had it for 29 years now. When I got my Crescent, I put it on my original badge, not the vintage badge that I have. My Arc of Epsilon Pi with Diamonds is on the vintage one. I don't know which honors track I will continue with so I want to have both available at any time. For non-Alpha Gams, they are awards for service to the Fraternity. The Arc series is for continuous, faithful and outstanding service to a local chapter, club, or levels of our volunteer services team. The Crescent is for the same type of service, but at the International level (directors, regional coordinators or International Council). My Arc with Diamonds represents 17 years of service. My Crescent represents 5 years. My next honor will depend on what direction I want to go with my service and I haven't quite decided that yet

I wore my new badge with the alternating emeralds and pearls! And a student asked me what it was so I got to talk about it, even better.

Even though we don't "observe" the occasion, I whipped my badge out too! My workplace is pretty casual, so I wore my alumnus pin on my coat lapel today.

Yay! I love it. I got my boyfriend to wear his pin to work today. His office is only three other people, but hey why not?

Still haven't ordered my replacement badge so I wore my lavalier instead.

I'd love to see pictures. I love learning about the way in which each org honors members. Your Arc, Zeta's ring, etc.

Went to a Panhellenic dinner tonight and had a great time!

Sat between an AGD I already knew and an KD (who works with their chapter at my alma mater) and across from 2 SKs, AXO (maybe) and Zeta. Several GPhiBs (I guess, lol), Phi Mus, ChiO, AST, AXiD (?) and not sure what else.

I work at our family's shop, which is full of black sawdust, so no badge apparel for me! I did wear a pretty silver and rhinestone anchor on a silver necklace that my hubby got me for Christmas year before last.
Kinda miss those days when I dressed up for work.

I wore my ruby A, pearl O, ruby point Pi badge today. I stood out nicely on my black shirt. Not a single comment, though.

Couldn't wear mine today since my job requires me to wear scrubs but I posted a picture of my badge on my facebook page and a couple coworkers asked about it.

AGDee and I were awarded Crescents at the same time - here's a picture of my badge with the Crescent:



And here is a badge with the Arc with Diamond [representing a minimum of 11 years continued faithful service to Alpha Gam]:

I pulled out my quill, removed the guard (my old eyes just are not making that happen) and proceeded to NOT put it on. I will wear it tomorrow!

TPA85, I normally wear scrubs everyday as well, but since I am a supervisor, I have the option to wear regular clothes. So, today, I chose to wear dress pants and a sweater so that I could sport my badge. The scrubs we wear in Pathology & Laboratory Medicine service are purple. Since my Baylor Lady Bears were scheduled to play Kansas State (whose color is purple) tonight in their final conference game of the season, I had already planned to wear something other than my scrubs, so it worked out well for me =)

I thought I'd started a thread on that very topic, but I just searched and couldn't find it.

It took me I don't know how long to figure out the progression from the Arc to the Crescent to the Circle for our awards.

P.S. I wore my badge yesterday, but it was covered by my jacket. I even wore my badge to P.E.O. last night, rather than my P.E.O. emblem.

I didn't wear my badge. Sadly, I discovered my fingers didn't work well enough to work the clasp. Stupid RA, but I wore it in spirit!
