National Lineworker Appreciation Day is celebrated each year on April 18th and honors the men and women who work around the clock to keep the power on. Congress passed a bill designating April 18 as National Lineworker Appreciation Day in 2013, after the devastation of 2012’s Hurricane Sandy.

“Lineworkers work all hours of the day, often in hazardous conditions, away from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their community,” said Charlie West, General Manager. “They work under dangerous conditions on a daily basis. Our lineworkers, as well as lineworkers across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”

To honor Lowell Light and Power’s lineworkers, we invite customers and community members to take a moment to thank a lineworker for the work they do.

Kids in the community are invited to visit Lowell Light and Power’s For Kids! page at www.lowell-light.org/for-kids for downloadable coloring pages and activity sheets.

Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22nd, marking the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970 and highlights environmental consciousness.

Arbor Day is celebrated each year on the last Friday in April, when communities around the globe gather to celebrate trees and their importance in our lives, and plant trees for a greener tomorrow. The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska City, Nebraska, on April 10, 1872, where it is estimated more than 1 million trees were planted in the state. By 1920, more than 45 states and territories were celebrating Arbor Day. Now all 50 states observe Arbor Day along with the rest of the world.
