08-24-2014 - Pom/Cheer/Spirit Line T-shirt Order Form
Time is getting close for our reunion. Again we want to share the word, so help me pass this information onto the people you have been sharing this information with. This is the order form for the T-shirts we will wear to Homecoming. We want you to wear these if you are coming to the Homecoming Game on Friday Oct. 17th. My understanding is that it is a V-neck. It is NOT a deep V. The sizes are unisex Tee sizes so keep that in mind. They will say McClintock Pom or McClintock Cheer or McClintock Spiritline on the front, and on the back your last name and the year you choose (usually graduation year). I would use your maiden name——
The t-shirts will be handed out at our Thursday Cheer/Pom Reunion, or at the football game if you miss the Thursday night function. Please get your reservations made and Order in ASAP. I'm looking forward to seeing you all. The shirts will have the McClintock 50-year Legacy Logo on the one of the sleeves.
Even if you aren’t going to the game or attending the Anniversary Celebration , ORDER ONE ANYWAY, it’s only $15.00!!!!!
DEADLINE FOR ORDERING SHIRTS IS TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD.
