2 Generations of Gold Card holders

No, not credit cards!!! 

My Dad is a member of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, as was his father.  A few years back, he received his gold card.  This means he's been in the union for 50 years and is now considered a Lifetime Member.  He also had the card that his father received when he reached that milestone.  A little while back he handed both cards to my sister and asked her to hold onto them...he was afraid they would be misplaced.  So she had a great idea.  She took them to Michaels Craft Store and had them framed together and we gave it to him as a birthday gift last night.  It turned out great! 

I find it interesting that my grandfather's from 1968 looks better than my Dad's from 2002.
