We are closing out this fantastic year of celebration with some more national Park memories. These two memories come from Pendleton employees.
Erin is one of our designers. She has this to say about this photo:
Although I don’t remember this, it is a popular story at family get gatherings. This is a picture of me at the Grand Canyon with my mother (Nancy) and aunt (JoAnn). I am recovering from a massive tantrum because my mother would not release me from her toddler hiking backpack. I really wanted to cross the guard rail to get a better look at the Grand Canyon! Obviously my request was not met and I went into a hysterical crying tantrum.
And, for our last post of the year, here’s a classic shot given to us by Robin, who is head of our bricks-and-mortar stores division:
Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood: The year was 1957, I was 4.5 years old. I was visiting my West coast grandparents from New York with my New York City grandmother, Rose Raskin in the Pendleton 49’er jacket, my mother, Mary Bonetta, and little sister Hillary, age 2. I recall only the gift shop, where I was to receive a totem pole. Who knew then I would work for Pendleton 45+ years later. Wish I had that 49’er jacket!
Two wonderful memories, two fabulous photos and two babies for the New Year.
Happy New Year from Pendleton Woolen Mills!
