A New Life for the Hinton Cenotaph

Nov 15, 2019

West Fraser is a part of every community where we have our mills. We want to offer a helping hand when we can. Recently, it was clear the Cenotaph in Hinton needed an upgrade, and our team was ready to help.

The Cenotaph is significant to the Royal Canadian Legion because it’s a way to recognize the sacrifices of Canadians killed in conflicts. But it needed a lot of work. This included new LED lights and drilling electrical lines.

Todd Erickson, the Transportation / Warehouse Supervisor with Hinton Pulp, took the lead on the project and on November 5, 2019, it was installed in time for Remembrance Day. The team included people from Hinton Pulp and Hinton Wood products, as well as members and businesses from the local community.
