September 5: Cooper-Bessemer “Old Timers Gathering”

Once again, we'll be hosting visitors to the C-B Old Timers get-together on Saturday, September 5 from noon to 4:00 or so at the Museum.
For nearly 20 years, retirees from The Cooper-Bessemer Corporation and its successors have gotten together in the early Fall to reminisce about the good old days at C-B, and an afternoon visit to the Museum has always been part of the weekend event.
As an added feature this year, Norm Shade will be giving a presentation entitled, "Cooper-Bessemer: 165 Years of Engine and Compressor Innovation" from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 for all who are interested. Mr. Shade spent more than 30 years with the Cooper Cameron Corporation in engineering, management and executive positions. His
PowerPoint presentation will be based on his recent publication on this topic for the Coolspring Power Museum in Coolspring, Pennsylvania.
We are always happy to see C-B retirees return from all over the country to spend some time with us, seeing some of our displays that tell the story of Knox County's longest standing company.

Unless otherwise noted, our monthly meetings are held at the
Historical Society Museum

Mount Vernon OH 43050

Programs begin at 7:30 p.m.
