Memorial Day Open House 9-Noon


Moving Pillsbury Forward will host an open house at Pillsbury from 9am to Noon on Memorial Day, May 27. The dock area (16th St. & Phillips Ave) will be open for viewing of the “Roll Call” wall and a new street art tribute to former Pillsbury workers. 

We now have over 1300 employee names on the “Roll Call” wall. Local artist and granddaughter of a long-time Pillsbury worker, Jen Santarelli, has been keeping up with additions to the wall this past month and we have had many requests for another opportunity to gather with friends and family for photos. Well…we decided Memorial Day is perhaps the best opportunity for a community gathering. Come on out and enjoy this impressive tribute to the workers.

Engraved Pillsbury bricks will be available for purchase for $20 each. We have a limited supply in-stock. And, a site history and discussion about the Pillsbury Project will take place starting at 11am. We look forward to seeing you on Memorial Day!

Thanks for being a part of this important community project.
