"The Pig & Whistle Cassiar 1980" beer mug.
A very special story is behind this mug. Early in 2001 Susan Thirlwell wrote to me reporting that her non-Cassiarite friend was quite upset as she has broken her last Cassiar beer mug and wondered if there was anything I could do to help. I sent out a newsletter with the story and in less than one hour Mary Comper wrote me and generously offered one of hers. I immediately sent out a happy newsletter sharing the good news. Within a few minutes Helen Ayers wrote to me commenting on the great community spirit. I couldn't agree more. Thanks Mary.

I never had the pleasure of making Helen's acquaintance in Cassiar and knew her only from our email correspondence prompted by the Cassiar website. At this time I shared with Helen the sad fact that I had broken my very own Cassiar beer mug about two years prior and I was quite upset by that and so I knew how much Mary's generous gesture was appreciated. Nothing more was said about it. At the Cassiar 2001 Reunion Helen and I met briefly and then on Sunday morning she tracked me down and presented me with the very mug depicted here. Was I ever surprised! I was so deeply touched by this kind act. Thank you Helen!

Laundry_stamp.jpg (15439 bytes)
Shrinkies Laundry Stamp
Employees who lived in a bunkhouse in Cassiar had their laundry done at the local cleaners, commonly known as "Shrinkies" (for good reason). To identify your washables they would stamp your Cassiar payroll number on all your items with indelible ink. Here, on a handkerchief, is a testament to the durability of the ink stamp. The handkerchief with my payroll number was scanned April 29, 2000, approximately 20 years after its stamping. It has had regular use and has not been tucked away in a drawer all these years.
