The event was held to highlight North American Occupational Health and Safety Week, said division manager Dwayne Thiessen.

“After being down for two years we thought it was appropriate to let people go through the mill and see what we’re about,” Thiessen said.

The day included hot dogs, a static display, seedlings for the kids, and a bouncy castle.
