For two solid months, our producer alliance was the sole source of face shields for front-line workers in Northumberland. Looking back, it is hard to believe that our community faced critical shortages of personal protective equipment, and that such an urgent need would be met by a spontaneous effort of passionate volunteers.
Honoured to rise in the Legislature today to speak about the remarkable work being done by the Northumberland Producers Alliance. This remarkable ingenuity, collaborative spirit and volunteerism is what makes our community great. To everyone involved, thank you for rising to the occasion to support our front line workers!
Today marked the planned end of full-scale production at Venture13. Under Production Lead Colin Slade and his team of indefatigable volunteers, we achieved a high water mark in our daily output. We made it to the astounding level of producing an average of 280 units per day, representing a 263% increase in volume of production since April 10th, 2020.
