A "very glad we these for our history"
THANK YOU to those NEWSLETTER, PUBLICATION and Special Project EDITORS.
All of us enjoyed reading and looking at the photographs and the names, and seeing your years of employment, attendance awards or years of service or who's retiring along with the great amount of "effort" put into each newsletter by the editor of that issue.
The Omaha facility employed about 6-7 professional Public Relations staff/newsletter editors over the life of the facility. They informed us on a monthly, bi-quarterly or quarterly basis about our facility, corporate, town-hall meetings and many employment issues. Additional planning for creation of anniversary brochures and visitors coverage for many extra events were overseen and completed by them. We were fortunate to also have other non-company newsletters by the union and internal social groups, all distributed and read at the facility.
The editors accuracy in acquiring all the names, departments, photographic images and information from many sources, and awaiting for our own internal print shop to get it out and to the factory floor. They were the "heroes" of the day, who gave hope and information about the directions of the local departments, and corporate and Omaha success stories.
A list of known editors is on another page...
click here to see that page.
Those we remember in the newsletters were from, photographs (b&w) and now (videos) who we worked with, and with over thousands employees at one period of time.
(didn't everyone at one time work here).
Yet at this stage of our lives, some have left our world and quite a few have left for other positions or retired. Our former employee list is constantly shrinking... probably 35+ a year are passing away.
With a new image capture device, I've added to my iMac computer, and one working VHS VCR player (an antique in the electronics world), I can now put these video images on YouTube and then link that link them to my website. I hope none of them offend anyone. Just wish I had more video tapes or images... for I did a lot of video tapes and photography during my career at the plant.
THANK YOU: to the kind people who saved these articles for the website for all to enjoy and remember.
Ask you children/spouse to look in the attic or basement... the box of history is out there -
