Sewing:
Do you sew?  Do you enjoy sewing?  The Supply officer can now order the sew on Wedge patches.  Wedges (head dress) used to come without a patch or Brass (insignia).  The used to be a “brass” and got added after.  Now they are sewn on and come with the wedge.  If there are parents out there who can and are willing to sew, I can order patches for the older wedges that are still serviceable rather than throwing them out.  If you are interested in sewing a few please contact Jeff Sweitzer at jeff.sweitzer@sasktel.net
