On Memorial Day, it will have been five years ago that an explosion at the paper mill in Sartell ended a 106-year era.

Dennis Molitor wants everybody to remember that sad day and the man who died. He also wants to remind people of the enormous importance of that mill not only to Sartell but to all of the thousands of people who worked there during its nearly 11 decades of thriving business. Molitor, an employee at the mill for 38 years, will unveil a paper-mill memorial display right after the Memorial Day ceremony in Veterans’ Park. The tribute-to-veterans ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. Monday, May 29. Molitor’s mill-memorial ceremony will begin at about 11:10 a.m. – exactly five years to the minute that the mill explosion happened.
