Chinook Lumber in North Bend will host a reception in honor of longtime employee Regie Bayne, of North Bend. Bayne is retiring after 24 years with Chinook.

Bayne has worked at many positions in the company, including driving a forklift, loading lumber, counter sales and branch manager for a time.

“Her commitment to customer service and willingness to assist the builders, contractors, and do-it-yourselfers in the Valley over the years, has helped them and Chinook Lumber continue to grow for over two decades in the Valley,” said Chinook Lumber owner Jim Freeman. “We wish her the best of times in her retirement and extend a huge thank you to a great employee who will be missed.”

The reception starts at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 29, Bayne’s last day of work, at the store, 1204 Bendigo Blvd., North Bend. All are welcome for cake and refreshments.
