The date was March 29, 1967. Card was signed by Bob Ames “Imperial Turtle”. That was over 50 years ago. All I can remember was at the time I was working as an installer for Western Electric, and I was attending a technical class. One of the speakers, “Bob Ames” asked if anyone in the room was a Turtle. No one answered. He told his story and by the end of the lecture, we all left as Turtles. Two weeks ago I was visiting an old friend in North Carolina. We were having lunch with some of his friends and one of them asked me if I was a Turtle. I was surprised I still remembered it, but I gave the correct response. When I got home, I looked for my membership card and to my surprise I still had it.
