* If your scratching your head why I started at 1945, if the attendance
awards started in 1927.
1. Supply and Demand, 1927-1944 are very hard to find, every now and then

There is one website that show the 100% attendance pins in there entirety at
Lions International Trading Pin Club .
2. All pins are from my collection, and I have 25 years of perfect attendance. BK
