A Christmas Message To Fieldcrest
Men and Women
Christmas, 1954, brings to a close an eventful year for every
one at Fieldcrest Mills, Inc. It has been a year which started out
badly, with curtailed employment and real hardship for many
of our people. The last six months have been better with better
pay rolls, better shipments, and better results for the company
as a whole. For this we are thankful. I think we have passed
our low point and that 1955 will be better for all of us.
You have been wonderful. There has been no complaining'
or criticism and your support and encouragement during a criti
cal period have meant a great deal to those of us responsible for
the management of the company. I thank you in behalf of my
associates and myself.
Christmas is a special time of year, with its own meaning to
each of us. The late Peter Marshall, Chaplain of the United
States Senate from 1947 to 1949, wrote an excellent Christmas
sermon which you can read in the December issue of Reader’s
Digest. I would like to close this Christmas message to you with
this beautiful quotation from Mr. Marshall’s sermon, which ex
presses better than I can. my Christmas wish for you:
Hie long for the abiding love among men of good will which the
season brings ...
believing in this ancient miracle of Christmas with its softening,
sweetening influence to tug at our heart strings once again.
We want to hold on to the old customs and traditions because
they strengthen our family ties,
bind us to our friends,
make us one with all mankind
for whom the Child was born, and bring us back again to the
God Who gave His only begotten Son, “that whosoever believeth
in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
^o we will not “spend” Christmas . . .
nor “observe” Christmas.
We will “keep” Christmas—keep it as it is . . .
in all the loveliness of its ancient traditions.
May we keep it in our hearts, that we may be kept in its hope.”
