Episode 5 The Millworkers

Host Mary Coss’ sculpture Ghost Log sits with a vintage reclaimed artifact, the head saw and carriage from historic Dickman Lumber Mill. Coss is joined by former Mill employees Milt Farvour, Dan Croupf and Paul Plein, who all worked at the Mill in the 1960’s and 70’s. Coss and the Millworkers discuss the working conditions, community of employees and culture of the Mill as well as its associated dangers.
