The Vassalboro Before/After School Child Care Program was recently treated to a fantastic workshop by SAPPI Fine Paper North America Quality Lab Supervisor, Raymond Caron.
The children learned about soft wood and hard wood trees, how to count rings to determine ages of the trees and were treated to a papermaking process. They each made their own paper and some students even placed pine needles and other objects from nature in their paper. All students received a wood “coin” of their own and samples of how this paper is used in our communities for dog/cat food bags, magazines and even labels for canned products.
