Harwood Sugar Mill Fulfils Bucket List request

99-year-old Bill Scales was a very special guest at the Harwood Sugar Mill and Refinery today.

The former Grafton Ophthalmologist and current resident at Mareeba Aged Care in Maclean, only recently lost his beloved wife of 73 years. It was then that Bill decided to make a list of goals for himself to achieve in the next year.

Bills goals are to 1. make it to 100 years of age, which he will do next February; 2. participate in another ANZAC Day March; and 3. visit the Harwood Sugar Mill.

Operations Manager, Grant Kaczorowski and Engineer Peter Coram were only too happy to help Bill realise his goal of touring the Sugar Mill.

Accompanied by his daughters Deb and Bel, a thrilled Bill remarked that the steam engine and raw sugar shed capable of storing 100,000 tonnes of raw sugar were amongst his highlights.
