I see you are in Oak Lawn. I live in Carol Stream. You should consider also joining "Chicago Moms". There are a bunch of Navy moms who get together frequently and have a really fun time!
Let me know if you didn't get the info from me. Here is the link to my website and you can place your order there. Please spread the word and tell everyone in your PIR about the ribbons. If the different divisions decide to do scarves as a way of spotting each other from far away let me know. I have them in pretty much every color and you can get them with an anchor and/or DIV on them and some people even get them with their Sailors name. they are also on my website so be sure and check those out. http://www.uniquememorymakers.com/
The Chicago group (see link on my page) are doing a Cubs game this summer. Check it out, too.
