It ought to detail the work that is being carried out, the types of materials being used and the time it should take to complete the task. Leaving behind anything out will give the contractor an exit if anything goes completely wrong. Think about computerized window ac unit with a far off to help make use easy as cake.

Brian Gambino (

Greetings. My mother came across her grandfather's paper lifetime membership card from 1956-57 and sterling silver engraved lifetime membership card from 1914. It appears to have been connected to a watch chain at one time. I don't know much about it, and I'm hoping someone can tell me a bit about it.

In it shows his picture along with the following text.

Life Membership Card Decatur, ILL Lodge 401. This is to certify that

Bro. S. J. Durbin P.E.R. is a life member in said lodge, having become so on the 7th day of April 1914.

It then has the secretaries signature, along with his signature and his member number 455. All engraved.

If anyone has any information on this membership card or can give me a little information about him, I'd be greatly appreciative. After coming across this, I'm going to join my local chapter in the St. Louis, MO area.
