I will soon be placing an order for navy, broad brimmed hats with the scout logo and 2nd Armidale Scout Group embroidered on the front. Each hat costs $16 and they are available in sizes 55cm, 57cm, 59cm, and 61cm. We are getting them from an Armidale business (the hats are not made here, but they will be embroidered here).
Thank you to those parents who have responded. Please let me know by Friday this week (18 July) if you would like to get one. Just send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me.
