Empire Moms Design Shirts For Empire Women!
Just in time for the holiday season, Empire Moms have designed and sourced T-shirts made to order specifically for the Empire women!
In an effort to spruce up the spectator section at our big meets and to saturate it with "Empire-mania," a group of moms and well-fashioned teens have arranged for a company to supply us with light cotton stylish women cut T-shirts. This one time only order is extremely time sensitive and orders must be placed by Tuesday, November 26 (sorry no exceptions if we want to receive them by 12/11). So show your team spirit and buy your Mom, teen or young girl swimmer a snazzy new Empire T-shirt that fits perfectly! Simply print out the attached order form with your selection, size and a check (payable to "D&D Embroidery, Inc.") and have your swimmer give it to their coach by Tuesday, November 26.
