Hidden History #16 The Golden Leaf

The golden leaf

In yesterday’s blog I told you about our “company tree” . 

If you look closely you will see a few golden leaves.  These distinguished leaves are reserved for employees who have worked for Flanagin’s Bulk Mail Service for over 10 years. 

To these employees, we honor you and thank you.

Hidden History #15 Not Just Any Tree

An outdoor feeling

A tree next to an outdoor billboard seems appropriate.

Gives the proper outdoor feel.

It’s not just any tree, look closely.

A closer look

Each customer gets a place of honor on our Company Tree.  We are truly grateful to our customers, without them we have nothing.

Have a Wonder-filled day,

Hidden History #14 Flanagin Dairy


Among the common items for sale at the general store is milk.  That would be expected, right?

This particular milk bottle has special meaning and family history.

Healthy Recipes

I got a little side-tracked this Sunday morning.  Thought I would share it with you.

I am impressed by this blog site about healthy eating so I thought I would pass it along to you.

Cindy is the daughter of a woman that worked for me for over 10 years.  She completely changed her eating habits and now blogs and shares her tried and true recipes.
