Dwayne Thiessen, division manager at Canfor-Vavenby, puts his dignity on hold during a fundraising dunk-tank event held in the mechanics shop at the sawmill on Friday, Oct. 26. Employees got a chance to send Thiessen and other managers into the water for $5 per throw while eating beef on a bun and participatingin other activities. Pictured (above) Madeline DeVooght sends a softball hurtling towards the target, and (right) she celebrates as the division manager slips beneath the waves. Three such events were held during the day, with the money raised going to the United Way for local charities and projects.
