Open House Enjoyed
By Du Pont Employees
and Their Guests
More than 3,000 people came to visit our plant during the
two-day “Family Day” and “Open House” on June 21-22. “Family
Day” was planned so every employee was host to his family while
they toured the areas, saw the displays, demonstrations, and
partook of refreshments. Pappa had an opportunity to show the
children and his wife where he works and tell them what he does.
Exhibits depicted the past, present and future of the
Brevard Plant. Product displays featuring our x-ray films and
other DuPont products were explained by guides from the various
areas. Door prizes were given every hour on both days and several
happy employees took home prizes in addition to their Board of
Directors’ Safety Prize . . .
. . . The children enjoyed pinwheels, paper hats, helium-
filled balloons, ice cream, cookies, and soft drinks. Play areas were
busy spots. Giant rubber kick balloons fascinated the children who
bounced them about like beach balls.
In the tents, the models of the plant and the Chemical
Magic Show drew a lot of attention. The automobile reaction timer
was a favorite of the young folks. Everybody’s tour soon came to
a stand where complimentary refreshments provided a pleasant
pause . . .
