A celebration for the generations at Ariens Company.  The company celebrated its 80th anniversary Friday by honoring 16 families who've worked for Ariens for three or more generations at its Brillion headquarters.

Ariens itself is a fourth-generation family business, making outdoor power equipment.

"To find a nice little area like a small town in Wisconsin where we have hard-working people interested in what they're doing, they bring their own sense of creativity to the job and a work ethic that's hard to match," Chairman Mike Ariens said.

Governor Walker was on-hand for the celebration.  Ariens employees, retirees, and dealers joined in the festivities.
