Canning

Now I know why our cannery in Rustburg was on school property. It was between our lockeroom and the practice field, and I remember well during August 2-a-days (circa '69-'72) trudging back from morning practice and the ladies, sometimes including my mother, would already be in there sweating away. How they stood those temperatures always amazed me.

Who Knew?

Great article! Have mentioned to a number of Virginians this return to yesteryear, and all were amazed that local canneries were back on the scene. Said the article brought back many happy memories.
