Women of Courtaulds reunite
CORNWALL, Ontario - Courtauld’s has been closed for 26 years now, but for the ladies who worked there the comradery is still going strong.
Twice a year, the ladies of Courtaulds get together to remember the good times. This year, they celebrated “25 years of friendship” at Terri Mitchell’s home on June 10.
“We miss it, yes, we miss a lot of the work that we did do and the friendships that we had, and in this way, we get to continue that with each other,” said Mitchell.
Terri had been at Courtaulds right to the end of December of 1992 and is the glue that keeps their group stuck together by orchestrated their reunions.
The group consists of close to 20 employees that meet twice a year when the weather is good, sometimes going for dinner at the Blue Anchor or even just a potluck like the one they had this Sunday.
“It was a really good working climate because there were no scandals, we all got along pretty well,” said Chris Kamenz a colleague of Terri’s.
