4th Annual Mill Workers’ Reunion – Saturday, 15 October, 2 to 4 pm
Did you or a family member work in one of the textile mills along the Mississippi River?
Did you have a job there as a summer student?
If so, we hope you’ll come share your memories with others at the 4th Annual Mill Workers’ event to be held at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. It doesn’t matter at which mill you or a family member worked. We’d love to have you join us!
At the reunion, learn about the proposed extension to the Almonte Riverwalk and the mill workers’ staircase… get a sneak preview of the contents of the 1880 time capsule recently found at the former Rosamond No.1 Mill (now Millfall Condominiums).
This year’s event will also feature Celtic and valley tunes by Ron Caron and the Barrhaven Fiddleheads along with delicious refreshments. Enjoy chatting with other former workers or their families and sharing reminiscences of earlier times. Please bring along any photos or artifacts to share. The Museum is located at 3 Rosamond St. E., in Almonte.
