*The half sheets to collect information are NOT essential.  I am sending Mr. Murphy a list of seniors to cross reference.  It is merely to get base information for their ordering.  CAP Size is N/A- they are elastic.  It is best to skip the cards and not stress over them- just pass out ordering packets:)
