History Roundtables are community conversations centered around a central theme. The series, entitled "Working at the Mill," may involve work done at the mill or activities related to the community life of mill workers and their families. Begun in 2009, each winter three programs are presented. These programs are available as videos which may be viewed on this website or as DVDs which may be obtained at the Bonner Milltown History Center.
