1967 was he  last  time  GA  met  in  Portland.  For  many  years, commissioners and advisory delegates received a commemorative pin with the GA logo on one side and the number, dates and place of the GA on  the  back.  The  pins  were discontinued in 1997. This pin was worn 50 years ago by Ruling Elder Commissioner Oliver Bruns, a member of First Presbyterian Church of Everson, Washington, and a commissioner from the Presbytery of Bellingham. It is now worn by his daughter, Ruling Elder Linda Gaines of Bethany Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, Washington.
