Wow.... What a Day on Friday! We celebrated our 175th Anniversary in great style. The weather produced the nicest day of the summer (really!). Our facility was dressed up in the finest shape it's every been in - we were all so proud. We welcomed employees, families, suppliers, and many friends to tour our factory, museum, and showroom. We had a wonderful program celebrating and honoring our history, including a keynote address by Senator Susan Collins. She was upstaged, however, by fourteen members of 7th generation of Hussey kids (ages 5 to 20) sharing our traditions with music, photos, and a wonderful narrative.
We proceeded to the Mill Field in North Berwick, with 640 friends enjoying music by Straight Lace, a full Maine Lobsterbake, dancing, games, and the best fireworks seen in years!
This was as great an event as we could have imagined, and we are feeling terrific about celebrating the special culture and long history that embodies our organization.
