A Big Celebration!
This past Saturday (October 16, 2010), Casanova’s Coffees & Fudge hosted a party in honor of Lewisville Roller Mills’ 100th Anniversary. The mill was built in 1910 by J. P. Sprinkle and was purchased by my grandfather, Fielden H. Jennings, Sr., in 1925. (An extensive photo history of the mill and the Jennings family can be found at Lewisville Roller Mills – One Family’s Story. The plural usage of the word “Mills” in the name “Lewisville Roller Mills” is also explained.)
Fun, Food, Music & More
With the backdrop of a beautiful fall day, the mill’s big 100th birthday bash ran from 1:00 till 4:00 p.m. at the site of Casanova’s Coffees & Fudge on the western end of the old mill building. The celebration also served as an opportunity to donate books and money to the Lewisville Library. In fact, three “gently used” books could be swapped for a FREE 1/4 lb. of chocolate fudge. What a delicious deal!
