Spreading the Word and Honoring the Vets!

Parade-2On Saturday, November 10, 2007, employees of Cascade Natural Gas Corp in Ontario, Oregon decided they wanted to honor the Veterans of this country by participating in annual Veteran’s Day Parade in Ontario. They decorated one of their trucks and purchased 75 pounds of candy to hand out to local youngsters who braved the 40 degree damp day to line the parade route and watch the 70 plus participants, including other utilities such as Idaho Power Company and Malheur Bell.

The gas company thought along with honoring the Veterans, they could use the opportunity to spread the word about calling before digging by adding a couple signs on the truck to remind folks to call the One Call Center before digging.

A good time was had by all and we want to remind everyone to support our troops home and abroad, and to thank a Vet!
