Today marks the 83rd birthday of our Founder and CEO, Bob Moore. Not only is 83 years a wonderful reason to celebrate, but I just found out that it marks his 40th year of stone milling. Now we have two reasons to celebrate. After all, if Bob never found his love of stone milling, Bob’s Red Mill wouldn’t exist. Bob and Charlee would probably be off traveling the world and pinching the cheeks of their great-grandchildren. Instead, Bob still pulls 8 hour days at the mill Monday through Friday making sure us “kids” are holding true to his dream. Sure, he still takes wonderful vacations and sometimes a long weekend, but for the most part he’s here every day doing his part to bring whole grains to the world.
We’re having a little party at our Whole Grain Store today and would love if you joined us to toast our founder. There will be Dixie-land music and freebies, cake and singing. Festivities run from noon to 2 pm, with speeches and cake cutting starting at 12:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
P.S. Ever wanted to know more about Bob and how he got his start? Well, then, we have good news for you! Bob will be releasing a biography next month. We’ll have more details as the book launch grows closer.
