“This year’s health and safety fair was very special to us,” Wilkett said. “We are celebrating 70 years as a Department of Energy site, it’s been two years since we’ve been able to hold an event like this because of the COVID pandemic and we are in the midst of our site-wide employee giving campaign which raised more than $1.21 million dollars in the past 11 years for non-profit organizations in our communities. It has been a day to celebrate our accomplishments, our dedication to safety and a time to remember to help those around us.”
