Employees at our refinery have a long-standing tradition of getting involved in the Sarnia-Lambton community. Here’s a look at some of the events our employees have participated in since May 2015.
Our employees volunteered as judges for the annual Lambton County Science Fair. Pictured with Sarnia-Lambton MP, Patricia Davidson are the winners of Suncor-sponsored awards: Caleb Winder, Joy Shah and Parth Vachharajani.
Congratulations to Caleb (pictured above) for winning three awards at the national Science Fair in Fredericton, New Brunswick! Caleb’s project was titled “Fusion + Fission = Future,” which explored the creation of a reactor that would cost less to build, operate without the risk of meltdown, and could run off a wider variety of fuel sources.
The “Suncor Heart Throbs” team raised $10,000 in support of this year’s Big Bike for Heart & Stroke event in May.
Judging by team co-captain Mike Nguyen’s sweet dance moves, it’s no surprise the team was recognized with a Spirit Award.
Sarnia Refinery vice president Mark Hiseler shares information about our refinery and the different career options at a Career Fair hosted by Aamjiwnaang First Nation.
We literally “hit the road” on the Suncor Energy Foundation Nature Way on Modeland Road and the Aamjiwnaang First Nation to celebrate Earth Day and support a community-wide clean-up.
Process Engineer-in-Training, Merissa Wiebe volunteered at the Actua Science Camp at Walpole Island First Nation. She lead an activity that taught students about composting and how it benefits plants and gardens.
Participants at Aamjiwnaang First Nation Actua Science Camp took turns preparing their “compost dessert,” with layers of Oreo cookies, pudding and whipped cream – a fun way to teach the group about how composting works.
We were invited to participate in Aamjiwnaang First Nation’s Envirofest – a family event aimed at promoting environmentally-friendly lifestyles and learning about local industry. We shared information about recent environmental improvements and performance at our refinery.
We also enjoyed meeting community members and their families when they stopped to create their own reusable shopping bag.
