Former employees of Guilford Mills met Aug. 25 at the Indigo Room in Erwin for a time of reminiscing with old friends and colleagues.
Guilford Mills of Fuquay-Varina closed its doors in 2008 marking an end of an era for what used to be one of the town’s largest private employers with products in markets ranging from automotive to apparel. Guilford Mills was an industry giant by 1980 becoming one of the world’s largest warp knitters.
The reunion was coordinated and hosted by Liz McLean, Sandy McLean and Tameka McLean, all of Erwin.
A program was presented by Lisa Parker-Williams, who offered reflections of the past, and Sherry Smith presented a memorial slideshow. A catered meal was served by Tonia McLean and Dot Jiles. Former employee Myra Laster took pictures.
Entertainment was provided by James Spears and DJ Boy Baby.
