Retired Pulp Mill Shift Engineer Norm Smith dies.

Norm Smith, a retired shift engineer, passed away this last Friday. Tom Reilly spoke with Norm's daughter today and the service for him will be on April 25th at 7 pm. It will be held at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in McKinleyville. She said that one of Norms best memories was when the mill gave him a party for his retirement. He very much enjoyed having the guys around just to visit and talk about old times. Sherie would like to do something like that again in Norm’s memory. She asked if Tom could help put something together, so now Tom needs your input. There will be a dinner after the service for all of the pulp mill people. It will be after 7 pm on the 25th. What Tom needs to know is how many would like to attend. Depending on the response, a place will be picked and reservations made. So if you would like to attend just send Tom an e mail at thomasbuddylee@suddenlink.net and let him know how many are in your party. Spouse’s are certainly welcome. The more the better, so please pass this information on so we don’t leave anyone out. Tom told Sherie that he would get back to her in a few days.
