Our lineworkers are the heart of Wheatland Electric Cooperative!
That’s why on National Lineworker Appreciation Day – April 12, 2021 – we take the opportunity to thank these individuals for the work they do, often in hazardous conditions and away from their families.
The NRECA board voted in 2014 to adopt a resolution recognizing the second Monday of each April as National Lineworker Appreciation Day.
To spread awareness about lineworker safety, reinforce the dangers of playing around power lines, and engage our youngest members, we’re sharing interactive sticker sheets with second-grade students at every elementary school across our service territory.
These sticker activity sheets are also available for pickup now at any local Wheatland office through the end of April, while supplies last.
Please help us share messages of appreciation with our lineworkers, by picking up your child’s sticker sheet, along with a thank you note, and returning the handwritten note from your child to our offices by April 7. (The note can also be sent to us on Facebook or emailed to email@example.com.)
Our lineworker thank you note can also be downloaded below. All messages returned to Wheatland Electric may be shared on social media.
Whether they’re restoring power after a major storm or repairing the critical infrastructure that powers our homes and businesses, our lineworkers are at the heart of everything we do.
Thank YOU for helping US #ThankALineworker all month long!
