A tour of the Kingsey Falls units was also planned during the day for brothers Alain and Laurent Le- maire, the co-founders, accompanied by Mario Plourde, President and CEO of Cascades. Celebrations to mark the milestone were also planned in the Company’s units throughout North America. “This day will be an opportunity to remember our his- tory, and to shine a light on the builders who came before us and created one of the most responsible companies in the world. Today, and throughout the year, we will proudly celebrate our successes together with our 10,000 Cascad- ers, with whom we will build the Cascades of tomorrow,” said Plourde. “Sixty years ago, my brothers moved to Kingsey Falls, a small village of just a few hundred inhabitants, to bring the old mill back to life. They had an idea that was daring for the time: to make cardboard from wastepaper. We invest- ed our entire lives, our family values, and our hearts into the pursuit of this larger-than-life dream. Today, I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished. I’m grateful to all the gener- ations of Cascaders who have shared in our life’s work,” said Alain Lemaire, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board at Cascades. Cascades also announced the donation of 116 hectares of ecologically valuable land to the Nature Conservancy of Canada. The land, a peat bog and wetland, was acquired by the Lemaire family in the early 1960s, and is located in St-Sylvère, Centre-du-Québec. The land is bequeathed to ensure its longevity and the survival of its species and ecosystems. To learn more, visit the Festivities section of the Cascades website at .
