Hodges Badge Company would like to introduce our newest addition to the rosette family….
The Littleton rosette can be personalized however you would like; the perfect way to acknowledge your student or athlete’s noteworthy achievement. Add your organization, an event date, or even a website. Don’t forget to include your rising star’s name as well!
Each rosette is corded in gold and comes in four eye-catching colors; blue, mustard, lemon, and orange. At just $.95 a piece, you won’t have to worry about congratulating twenty hard workers or two-thousand. It’s affordable!
These 6 ½” tall and 3” in diameter box pleated awards can currently be given to recognize academic and gymnastic achievements.
If you are looking to congratulate your students, choose from four NEW button designs: Honor Roll, Award of Excellence, Super Student, or Class of 2009.
Want to applaud your gymnasts? Pick from these four NEW button designs: All Star, Gymnastics, Cheer, or Happy Birthday.
All button designs may be mixed and matched with the four color choices that we offer.
The Littleton rosette is economical, personal, and better yet, sure to put a smile on that special someone’s face.
We wanted to thank Jim Farrell, Aquatic Director and Nina Milinazzo, Gymnastics Director of the Newport County YMCA for coming out to Hodges this month to train us on the YMCA swim and gymnastics events. We got a lot of information in two days that will help us to help our customers.
These two days of training are part of an ongoing program that includes every department from customer service to shipping. The program is to teach Hodges’ employees about the events that give out awards. It’s a win win situation. As customers, you benefit by knowledgeable employees. As employees, we can find job satisfaction in knowing we can do the best job possible and find motivation in the achievements that our products acknowledge. I know that may sound a little cliché but the fact of the matter is that we want to be the best awards company for both you and ourselves.
If you have any ideas on types events we should be learning about please send them to us!
Jenn and I spent last week at the USAG Olympic Selection Trials in Philadelphia, PA. We were there to exhibit along with the other USGSA members at the gymnastics trade fair held in conjunction with the trials.
Traffic at the show this year was very good. Cathy Feldman of USAG told us that they had a record 1,900 paid attendees before the show started. I heard later that another 500 signed up during the show. As usual Thursday (the first day) had the best quality of attendees with lots of club owners hitting the floor. By Saturday we were tired, and the hall was full of young kids bent on stealing as many knick nacks as they could get their hands on. Thieving kids is one thing, but when you see them handing all of your sample ribbons and medals to their mom a few booths away, it makes your stomach turn!
As usual the mega-raffle was a huge hit. We raffled off $68,000 in gymnastics equipment!!
While we were there we took in the women’s gymanstics trials on Friday night along with folks from Mancino Manufacturing and Deary Gymnastics. Where was Gibson? The women looked great and as someone who doesn’t eat, breathe and sleep gymnastics, wow – they have gotten really good in the past four years. Best of luck to all our competitors in Bejing this summer!!
