A few weekends ago, Lyon hosted a Thanksgiving lunch for all of the bakery staff and families. We were thrilled that almost every family was able to join the fun that began with a pig roast out in the car park and ended with a piniata party in the loading dock!
Several of the bakers have been with us since the very beginning, and we’ve been able to watch their families grow and prosper. For many of the staff, it was the first opportunity for their families to see their workplace and learn about what they do every day. The children (and some adults I might add) had a blast making their own bread, watching it come from the mixer to the table and then in and out of the oven; the whole process from start to end, resulting in something they could take home at the end of the day. There were a lot of happy little bakers departing the premises with bread alligators, owls, hearts and tortoises!
Without our staff, Lyon Bakery wouldn’t be able to function. This November, we are truly grateful for every single one of them.
