Different folks have different opinions about the necessity of name tags.
Because of my inability to remember names, they seem important. They also help Newbies.
I was in charge of them last year. My abilities in that direction are limited, so decided to do it simple and something that could be repeated easily if necessary.
Shopped at "Dollar Tree", where things really are $1.
- A pack of 300 lined 3x5 cards.
- A hole punch.
- A 4 color (4 roll) of colored ribbons.
- A red and a black medium point "Sharpie".
- A small stapler.
So total expense was $5 + tax. Which was recovered after donations
at the Pot Luck!
At the Meet-n-Greet on Thursday night, we folded the cards across and stapled them closed. Then punched a hole for the ribbons.
The participants used the Sharpies to create their very own unique name tags. We encouraged black ink for the "experienced" and red ink for the Newbies.
Seemed to work well and was easy to do. And if any got lost or rain damaged, they would be quick to remake.
On that same table were the orange ribbons for Show of Homes!
If y'all are interested in doing that again, a volunteer will be helpful.
Last year, several people mentioned that they would be glad to help this year.
So now would be a good time to take charge. A wonderful side effect of doing this is meeting so many people as they come to the table to create. Also seeing folks with their name tags and having a feeling that you
helped make that possible for lots of people. .
Just a suggestion!
