We observe Remembrance Day by honoring all of Canada’s Veterans and remembering all who died in service to their country. Many Canadians wear a red poppy flower to honor their fallen. We express our deepest gratitude to all current and former members of the Canadian Armed Forces and pause to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We are extremely proud to recognize our Twin Rivers Paper team members and their loved ones who have served. We thank you. We salute you. We honor you. We remember you.
