Talking About Our Past...
Sponsored by Cummins:
Let's continue to build and retain our rich history. The ongoing MugUp Event will provide a space that celebrates the stories of cannery work.
On hand will be:
- Archivists from the National Park Service ready to scan photos, newspaper clipping, food lists, union cards, immigration papers, business records, labels, plats, maps, and old instruction manuals.
- Project curators will be available to photograph artifacts such as tools and equipment, raingear, models, wooden boxes, paintings, and other memorabilia.
- industry veterans and historians will help identify the unknown.
MugUp is a colloquial word for coffee break and is an expression used only in canneries. MugUp fueled cannery workers with caffeine and pastries, provided a respite from the monotony of the slime line and momentarily brought people together from around the world.
Bristol Bay has a style of its own...from the rain gear on deck look to your going to town ensemble, the 2018 Fashion Show will bring the hottest looks of the Bay to the Expo stage. NEW in 2018, models will be enlisted to show off our featured live auction items that will includ industry items such as, merchandise, artwork and services.
