I'd be framing that certificate and hanging it on the wall .... heck, I'd probably be wearing the badge to bed if I had anything I'd want to pin it to?!?!

Thanks, is that building still standing? There are a few still standing in MN that now have different uses, but the names are still at the top being built into the brickwork.

This building is gone but it was still up when I first moved to town.  A couple of building are used for warehousing by a local trucking company
I remember a picture in the paper of the smoke stack demo.  A company took it down with bulldozer.   That takes. Lot of nerve
