(L-r) Canfor-Vavenby sawmill supervisor Karl Schuchardt quality control supervisor Chris May and plant manager Dwayne Thiessen cut three birthday cakes (black forest, vanilla and chocolate) to help celebrate Canfor’s 75th anniversary.

About two hundred people took part in a barbeque hosted by the company with help from Clearwater Rotary Club at Clearwater Secondary School on Saturday.

During his address to the crowd, Thiessen praised District of Clearwater for the active role it played in creating work for unemployed Canfor workers during the recent two-year shutdown.

Having a trained workforce ready to go was a great help when the sawmill reopened, he said.
