Louis Bachmann loved parties. When he’d been in business for 20 years, he held his first dock/employee reunion. He gathered his employees — past and present — together at 25 years, 30 years, 35 years, and 40 years near his birthday (which was August 13th). Anniversary shirts and staff pictures were part of each celebration, except for the 30th reunion. Rain put a damper on that party. Each party coincided with a milestone birthday for Lou, starting with his 65th birthday.
