UECU's Fall Fest, Family Fun & Fireworks


Join the fun October 20, 2018 at 4PM at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading, PA

Located at 1900 Centre Ave, Reading, PA 19601
FirstEnergy Stadium is the home of the Reading Fightin Phils, a Double A Affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.

 

UECU has invited thousands of utility and energy employees from the East Coast to attend a special appreciation event on Saturday, October 20, 2018.

 

Wyomissing, PA, October 19, 2018 – As Hurricane Michael spread its fury across the South East, it knocked out power for millions of people in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia. Employees from MetEd, Miller Bros, PPL, PECO, Wright Tree Service, J.W. Didado, Car & Duff, Inc., as well as individuals from the local IBEWs were among the crews that worked around the clock to help restore power to the residents affected by the Category 4 hurricane.

As many of these crews return home this week, UECU will be welcoming them back with a special homecoming at the Fightin’ Phils Stadium in Reading, PA. The utility employees and their family members are invited to attend the Credit Union’s 2nd Annual Fall Fest. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the National Sisterhood United for Journeymen Linemen (NSUJL.org). This charitable organization provides financial and emotional support to electric utility families who have been affected by work-related injuries or fatalities. A special memorial will be set up at the event to display the names of the men and women who have lost their lives while on the job. 

Throughout the event, the work of dedicated utility workers will be highlighted on the stadium’s main video board and on televisions in the concourse. Utility bucket trucks will also be parked around the perimeter of the stadium. PSI (Power Systems Institute) will be onsite to talk to anyone who may be interested in pursuing a career in the electric utility industry. While the Credit Union holds this event to thank utility workers for everything they do, they also hope to create awareness for the courageous efforts of utility and energy employees all over the country.
