Tie Guy. They sell for $25 and are available from the Lorne Bowerman at 613-225-7904.

Name Badges

The BAC Council has developed a BAC name badge that can be ordered directly from the engraver, Ron & Donna Baba of Peony Enterprises. The badge was designed to be universally used by any men or men's organization in Canada or elsewhere there is a BAC. The price is about $7 plus GST and shipping. Ottawa men may order their badges for $7 from Lorne Bowerman at 613-225-7904 or lorne at bowerman dot ca

The e-mail address of Peony is:

Please contact them. The names can be e-mailed to Peony in the text of a message or they can be attached as a text file and e-mailed to Peony. They can be mailed or faxed as well. The production system used by Peony is set up to have the first name on one line, the last name on the line underneath, and the church's name on the third line. The first name and last should be upper case for readability and the church's name can be upper and lower case. An example is given below:
St. Mark's, Ottawa

Note that the word "church" was omitted in order to increase the font size - we are all churches.
