Starting up again

Dear Mike:
Our purpose to revitalize the Quarter-Century Club for the employees of Resolute Forest Products and all the previous companies, along with us retirees, is coming to fruition.
The club, which has been defunct for five or more years, will start up again on June 27 with a banquet at the Fort Frances Legion beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Many past and present employees wish to continue this tradition to carry on this recognition for those who worked 25-plus years.
We acknowledge the accomplishments of all our Fort Frances mill groups, being one of the best in the world that created a culture of pride in our working relationship with one another.
Since there are several quarter-century clubs in the district, ours will be called “Mill Quarter-Century Old Timers’ Club” to keep us distinct from the others.
Tickets cost $25 each, which can be purchased at “From the Grind Up” on Scott Street, at the Sister Kennedy Centre from 8:30 a.m.-noon, as well as from any committee member.
Cheques, made payable to the “Mill Quarter-Century Old Timers’ Club,” also may be sent to Wendell Stevens at 1132 First St. E., Fort Frances, Ont., P9A 1L9.
Ed Bogacki also will be selling tickets at the golf course and about (please see the ad in this edition of the Times for more information).
The cut-off date will be June 15 for mailed-in cheques.
All other tickets must be purchased on or before June 13 to allow the Legion auxiliary catering time to purchase the required supplies.
Bill Morrison, Chairman,
and Ed Haglund,
Mill Quarter-Century
Old Timers’ Club
