Class of 1959 Name Tag
Kathi Archer of Kathi's Buttons in Red Oak, IA, used buttons as giveaways at her 50th Class Reunion. "We used the button as a name tag so everyone would recognize classmates," Kathy said. "After all, it was our 50th, and for some it had been a long time since seeing everyone." The name tag buttons, plus a commemorative button proclaiming "Class of 1959" were big hits at the gathering.
I'm a Computer Nut
Rexx Behring from Mount Pleasant, TX wears his "I'm a Computer Nut" button at his volunteer job of helping seniors with computer issues. "I designed this button as an 'ice-breaker'," Rexx said. We thought it was good way to get message across that he's the one to go to for computer help!
We couldn't resist this "Cupcakes" button submitted by Allison Seibel of Portland, OR. Allison "loves baking cupcakes." "I'm a little on the dark side, so why not have an awesome button to show it?" she said.
Proposition 1
A new police station was the goal of this button, submitted by Herschel Fullerton from Walla Walla, WA. (Don't you just love saying "walla walla"?) The Citizens for a New Police Station Committee made 2000 of these buttons to hand out at various functions. They also went door-to-door to pass them out while informing people about the bond issue on the August primary ballot to build a new police station. "The people wore them, and sure enough, the proposition won!" said Herschel. A new police station will soon be in the works!
Gateway Aircooled VW Club
Pat Murphy of Lake St. Louis, MO, designed these buttons to be worn by the members of the St. Louis Volkswagon Car Club. "Club members display display the button at all the car shows they go to, wearing it on their hats and shirts," Pat said.
CORE Fitness 250 lb. Press
Yvonne Pribyl of Greenville, NC. submitted this button. "I was asked to make some pins to help acknowledge the accomplishments of the members of a local fitness facility," Yvonne explained. Yvonne made an assortment of buttons for various accomplishments.
