CLINTON —

Clinton At-Large Councilman John Rowland told participants that most would no doubt be shocked by the number worker deaths Clinton has seen, especially as part of the sawmill industry. He reminded people that safety is the responsibility of both the employee and the employer.

Krajnovich was pleased with the turnout of Monday’s event. The event has been held at Riverview Park for the six years and at various churches for approximately 12 years before that.

“It is a sign of great honor and respect that we dedicate a day to all those workers who’ve lost their lives and those who have been injured in the workplace,” said Mullendore, reading Loebsack’s letter.
