KEN JEWETT’S STORY

 

I hope the following program will not be considered a work of vanity. I do not excel in vanity. However, I am pleased to be an Entrepreneur of two successful enterprises, Marsan Foods and Maple Leaves Forever and the proud father of a wonderful family.

The material that follows tells not only my story but Edie Jewett’s story as well. Whatever I accomplished I could not have done without Edie as a partner.

My main reason for presenting all this information is for later generations of our family to learn about their ancestors. If interested, for non-family visitors, I warn you there is a lot of watching – suggest going through it one segment at a time – spaced out.

 

HOW IT ALL HAPPENED

I wrote a series of newsletter articles for Marsan Foods. The main part of this book encapsulate the ups and downs of this organization as it struggled to be successful at the end of that which it is.
