A special get-together of past workers of the Brantford Cordage and their families took place on November 7th. We had several past employees and many family members come out to what is now known as Unit 25 to reminisce about their time working in one of Brantford's 'big 15' manufacturing facilities.

The evening had a very special feel to it as these proud workers came out to share some special memories and see some of their coworkers from the past. Displays were set up showing pictures of the old factory and products that were made here. We loved hearing these cherished stories, which clearly indicated how much these workers liked working at The Cordage, which in its heyday, employed up to 800 people and was the largest maker of twine in the British Empire. Every one of the workers who spoke to the group stated that it was the most enjoyable job they had worked at.
