They were taking part in one of several fundraising events held at the sawmill last week as the Canfor division sought to increase the $23,000 donated to the United Way by its employees last year.

The money is spent locally to support programs such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the healthy living program put on with Clearwater Secondary School and District of Clearwater.
