At the April meeting, the purchase of hats, badges, and vests were discussed. Here are typical samples of vests we can get with the SDXA look put on them. It would be nice if there was one official SDXA design consisting of color, logo, call letters, and handle. Someone needs to step up and correspond with the officers so at the next meeting it can be presented and voted on.
