If you live in West Bend or Washington County chances are you have a family member or two that worked for the West Bend Company.
It was one of the largest employers in the community as entire families would be on the lines manufacturing aluminum cookware or electrical appliances.
The West Bend Company was a place where men met their wives, where their children worked and their children worked.
Coming up Saturday, April 23 there will be a West Bend Company reunion at the old factory, 611 Veterans Avenue.
The West Bend Company reunion will coincide with an open house as the former factory that was known for making pots and pans has been repurposed into the new Cast Iron Luxury Living Apartments.
Folks will gather and share stories about working at the company, tours will be offered and there will be free food and drink and music. The event will run from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
RSVP’s are appreciated at 414-975-2617 or E-mail Megan at [email protected]
