From Louise Todd
TO: Friends of Ray & Dauphine Hunley
Many of you know that the Hunleys have moved in with their daughter, Eloise and family. Their new address is:
808 Harbor View Terrace
Old Hickory, TN 37138
They would appreciate cards to keep in touch and know we think of them often. Also, Ray is celebrating birthday 92 on July 23. Let’s shower him with cards! Anyone is welcome to visit them.
In addition to ordering hats Janice was asked about ordering t-shirts with the Athens Dulcimer logo and she said if we can get up an order for 12, as they charge a set-up fee if it is less than 12 (they are screen printed), and that would make them more expensive. If we can get at least 12 she will be glad to order them, but you need to let Janice know. Most basic colors are available, and regular sizes.

Janice Swanner wanted me to let everyone know that she is taking orders for ball caps with the Athens Dulcimer monogram/logo.
The basic colors are available, with mesh back or solid. The more we order, the lower the price. Janice will not know how much they cost until she picks them up, the last ones were about $10 each.
The most popular colors are red, blue, khaki and sometimes she can get denim.
If you are interested in placing an order let Janice know. She plans to order when she thinks she has heard from everyone interested.
Here’s a sample of what the monogram/logo looks like (the hat may be different because I used my own hat when this one was made):
