T-SHIRTS & PINS AVAILABLE

The LWV of North Dakota is selling t-shirts and lapel pins as part of their fundraising drive this year.

White t-shirts with the LWV logo in blue and red appear on the front left breast.

 

(Webmaster note:
The t-shirts look much better than my drawings)

The back reads "Hell is a place where terrorists run rampant, congressional leaders bicker, Americans burn flags, and nobody votes. Heaven is a place where terrorists are behind bars, congressional leaders unite, Americans wave flags, and everybody votes."


Metal American flag lapel pins with red, white and blue ribbon make a great patriotic statement.

Shirt price = $17.50 each
Pins price = $3.00 each.

Support the ND League and your country by purchasing a t-shirt and/or a pin! If you want to purchase either,
please call Suzanne Dobbins at (701) 271-9404
or e-mail her at DobbinsND@aol.com
