Nice pin! I don't remember the pins, but the "Quarter Century Club" was a very big deal at the mill, with a long list of new members in every issue of Warp and Filling. (30-, 40-, maybe even 50- year veterans too)

I am hoping to find a stack of back issues of the W&F company magazine in our attic, but somebody probably tossed them. Anybody out there have a set?

The lighthouse is not familiar, doesn't look much like pics of Point Gammon. Probably just a stylized lighthouse from a costume jeweler's catalog; had they intended a specific lighthouse it would certainly have been either Butler's Flats or Palmer's Island, both visible from the mill.

I don't recall any lighthouse logos.
