In memory of Morning Song

Rensselaer lost one of its small manufacturing plants recently, Morning Song Wild Bird Food. I never knew much about it, but I did mention it a couple times in past posts.
It is rather strange that they left the flag on the flag pole.

Below are a couple pictures from happier times. Occasionally a tanker truck would pull up to the building to deliver some liquid ingredient used in their products.
These two pictures were taken on April 20.

Add another building to the list of empty Rensselaer buildings.
A neighbor of the building said that the operations of the plant had been relocated to Reynolds, Indiana, where the headquarters are located. The ten or twelve workers had been offered jobs there if they wanted to commute. Production ceased here four to six weeks ago. Anyone know more? If you do, tell us in the comments.

I think I saw in the Republican that the city is looking at buying (or leasing) the building for one of the city departments. I think it was the gas and/or utilities.
