Itâ€™s unusual for a business to celebrate its 100th birthday while simultaneously planning a retirement party, but manager Mike Schwehr and his crew at C.H. Carpenter Lumber company are doing just that.
â€śItâ€™s a little hard because youâ€™ve put so much into it,â€ť Schwehr said of the closing. â€śItâ€™s tough. Theyâ€™ve been good to us around here, the communityâ€™s supported us well. Weâ€™ve been thanking everybody for everything theyâ€™ve done over the years.â€ť
