Sheaffer Pen centennial gala in Fort Madison
The celebration, which wrapped up Saturday, included a 100-year birthday cake, forum panels led by current and former Sheaffer employees, a visit from Sheaffer family members and a silent auction, the Burlington Hawk Eye reported (http://bit.ly/12jYb01).
Sheaffer general manager Tim Williams, who runs the company out of Paris, says BIC is well aware of the impact the company had on the community, which is why the 2,800-square-foot Sheaffer Pen Museum was opened in Fort Madison last year.
Fort Madison resident Dick Canella worked for Sheaffer Pen for 39 years and served as vice president of operations until his retirement in 1985.

New York Mets lose 8-2 to Chicago Cubs
Hefner lasted just four innings and Ike Davis' slump continued in the New York Mets' 8-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.
Hefner (0-5) was charged with four runs and five hits in his shortest start since he pitched four innings against Washington on April 20.
David Wright then stole second, but David DeJesus hauled in Lucas Duda's fly ball to deep left-center at the wall to end the inning.
New York had runners on second and third again in the second, but Mike Baxter popped out to shortstop to end the inning.
Scott Feldman pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning for the Cubs, and drove in two runs with a big two-out double.
Chicago was going for its first shutout since a victory over Colorado on Aug. 26, but Rick Ankiel broke it up with a two-run homer off Hector Rondon with one out in the ninth.
The Mets are appealing to Major League Baseball to get the second earned run charged Friday to Matt Harvey changed to an unearned run.
Chicago announced before Saturday's game that Matt Garza is returning from the disabled list and starting Tuesday in Pittsburgh, while Carlos Villanueva is heading to the bullpen.
