RIDGEWAY — Lang-Mekra employees in Ridgeway took time from the production floor to show their support for National Wear Red Day on Feb. 1. Not only did the company employees wear red, they also took home information at Heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.
Trudy Debien, office manager at the company, provided recipes and handouts on a table near the employee break area that showed warning signs, and other facts about Heart Disease. Events such as this are just part of what the company does to support their employees and the community.
