The cold and snowy spring day failed to keep more than 450 people from attending the Nortrax Chippewa Falls branch open house on April 12.

The theme of the open house was “Committed to Those Linked to the Land.” Everyone who attended received a Blue Spruce seedling to plant. The Wisconsin Industry Sand Association (WISA) held a booth to help educate customers on the sand mining industry. Customers were able to demo construction equipment at the huge demo area behind the store. The Nortrax service shop was used to feed everyone a delicious lunch of pulled pork and charcoal chicken.
