BREAT CANCER AWARENESS MONTH – CO PATCHES AND NON-CO LANYARDS
UCS has once again authorized our Court Officers to wear pink-themed Breast Cancer Awareness patches for the month of October. As a strong supporter of this cause, we have ordered a limited supply of these patches for interested Court Officers for those members that will actually utilize the “pink” themed patches, which will be distributed on a first-come basis. Please, do not request a patch if you are not going to wear it on your uniform and just put it in a drawer somewhere. Let those who will wear the patch receive it (while supplies last) and wear it proudly in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I would request that one person per facility or county or court (depending on the size of your facility/county/court) ask their fellow officers if they would like a patch and then contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org, or for Broome, Tioga, Chemung, Chenango and Delaware counties, contact Tammy Witteman, email@example.com or 607-240-5801, with the following information: Your name, mailing address, number of patches requested, who you are requesting the patches for (CO names). This is to avoid having to mail out “ten” different mailings to the same court/location and so that we have documentation as to who has already received a patch.
If you already received a patch in the past and/or wish to purchase additional patches, you may order them at cost at $2 per patch. Contact me for details. We hear our order will arrive tomorrow, 9/27. We will mail out the patches as quickly as we possible.
A reminder that all uniformed personnel must remove the patch and replace it with the regular CO patch by November 1st.
LANYARDS: The Local has also purchased Breast Cancer Awareness Lanyards for non-CO personnel and have distributed them in past years. Similar to the Court Officers, we would ask one person in facility or county or court get together a list of people that would like a lanyard and send me that information OR for Broome, Tioga, Chemung, Chenango and Delaware counties, contact Tammy at 607-240-5801 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The contact person should include their name, mailing address, number of lanyards to be sent and a list of who is going to receive a lanyard.
Thank you to our volunteers for helping out with this distribution process!
