We're Forestry Proud!


Elettra Communications has been thrilled to be involved in the Forestry Friendly Communities initiative for nearly a year now. Through videos and features, we tell the stories of hard working forestry and logging folks – everyone from foresters to pulp mill workers; educators to students; truck drivers to scientists; as well as community leaders, business leaders, and local groups like outdoors clubs.

Our main platforms to date have been the FFC website and Facebook page, but this week something very exciting is happening. We're heading to Port McNeill for the first annual Forestry Proud Day event. It's a concept we've been developing over the past six months along with the FFC committee. The idea is to get people together in person, and stand up together and say: “we’re proud to work in forestry!” 

The event includes a flag raising, fun activities, and a BBQ, and we're looking forward to making it an annual event. 

If you're on the North Island, come to Port McNeill on Wednesday to see what it's all about. If not, take a look at this video and the head over to Facebook to tell us why you're forestry proud.
