Morrell Reunion set for Saturday


Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — The annual Morrell Office Reunion gets under way Saturday in the Fox and Sac Room at the Hotel Ottumwa.

Reminiscing is at 11 a.m., followed by dinner at noon.

When the John Morrell & Co. closed in 1973, a small group of office employees started get-togethers. The first meeting was that September. The late Art Johnson was the guiding force in organizing the group and helped keep it going.

Donna Carruthers now has that role and has expanded membership to include foremen, salesmen and livestock buyers.

Anyone who worked in any of those departments is invited to the reunion, and spouses are welcome.

For more information, call Carruthers at 641-682-2016.
