A biscuit a basket

This coming March we're coordinating "Tea n' Baskets", an event to bring together those who have a mill lunch basket of their own. Whether you worked in the mill yourself or the basket was handed down from a family member, we welcome you to come out and show your basket and share your stories.

 A mill lunch basket, belonging to Bob and Tina Houston. Tina acquired it from a former employee of the Abitibi Mill in Stephenville. Tina cleaned, repaired and painted the basket, added the fabric lining and repurposed it as a potato basket

Join us on Sunday, March 18th from 1-3pm at the Glynmill Inn in Corner Brook and on Sunday, March 25th from 1-3pm at the Mount Peyton Hotel in Grand Falls-Windsor. 

We provide the tea and biscuits!
