Armco building in July 1956

The ninth Armco reunion is planned for Friday, Aug. 4 at the American Legion in Washington Court House.

Sixty-five years ago Armco Steel Corporation constructed a pipe manufacturing facility in Washington C.H. Later the product line was changed to steel buildings which were produced until 2004. The facility is now closed.

Hundreds of men and women were employed at this facility while it was under Armco Inc., and just as many have retired from this facility.

The social hour on Aug. 4 is set for 5 p.m. A group picture will be taken this year at 6:15 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $15 per person. Dress is casual. The guest speaker will be announced later.

This reunion is for employees only, excluding spouses, friends, etc.

“All employees who worked at this facility, whether under Armco or any other ownership, retired or not, are cordially invited to attend,” said an event organizer.

Employees are encouraged to bring any memorabilia that they may have in regard to their employment.

Reservations are required and must be made by Friday, July 28 by calling any of the reunion committee members: Gary Herdman, 948-2271; Betty Fulwider, 335-5449; Brian Mickle, 437-7487; John Mason, 313-7642; Chairman Eddie Fisher, 335-4345; Deanna Edwards, 505-1658; and Wilma Dorn, 335-3476.
