SALUKI SPIRIT INITIATIVE 2016
The Carbondale Chamber and the SIU Campus Community invite you to join us in celebrating our Saluki Pride in the coming school year. Throughout the 2016-2017 academic year several programs will be presented to encourage Carbondale businesses, organizations and residents to SHOW OUR COLORS. Each year, thousands of new students and visiting families arrive in Carbondale for various campus and community related events. We want to show them how proud we are of our Salukis and our town. Whether you realize it or not, these are one in the same. Already you see the Saluki Paw Prints decorating our roads and businesses around Saluki Country. Recently the chamber also released a Welcome banner option for businesses in the area.
We would like to encourage you to have your employees or group members wear maroon on Fridays throughout this year’s Saluki Football and Volleyball seasons. Let’s sellout Saluki Stadium and show visditing people what a town united and painted in maroon looks like.
To make this even easier for you, the SIU Campus and the Carbondale Chamber have joined together to endorse a special edition Saluki Spirit Shirt and logo for this season. We encourage you to use the graphic, along with the SIU Athletic Department’s spirit slogan “Run With Us” in your advertising and social media.
For our part, 710 Book Store will have this shirt available for individual purchase for $9.99 at all of our retail outlets as well as our web page seventen.com. Group pricing is available for purchases of 12 shirts or more. Whether your chose our service or have your own ideas, we encourage you to celebrate SIU anyway possible during the coming year.
