New GOAPIC Tee's

Hello members. 

I was asked to look into getting t-shirts for our group that we can wear in addition to our polos and jackets. I asked for input on design and received quite a few responses to use a design like the CDC’s Keep Calm and Wash Your Hands. 

  • We did change “wash” to “clean” and we changed the crown to include our chapter name.   
  • We will order them in a black t-shirt and purple t-shirt.
  • The t-shirt is a unisex size 100% preshrunk ring spun cotton; Double-needle sleeve and bottom hems; Contemporary fit
  • Cost is $10 for size S-XL  and   $12 for size 2XL-6XL    Checks to GO-APIC

I will be ordering some of these and will have them on hand if you would like to order.

I should have them at the April 17th meeting for you to purchase if you would like.

I will also have them at the PGD meeting in July.
