August 26, 2012 marks the 10 year Anniversary of the loss of Lakeland Electric lineworker Marc Moore. In recognition, the City of Lakeland along with the State of Florida will honor lineworkers for the job they perform each day and the sacrifices that they often make in very hazardous weather conditions.

On Thursday, August 24, 2012 an appreciation luncheon was held for Lakeland Electric lineworkers. City officials were on-hand to serve a BBQ lunch and say thank you to the men and women who keep the power on everyday. Also in attendance were Representative Seth McKeel and Florida Municipal Electric Association Executive Director Barry Moline. Both of these gentlemen were instrumental in acquiring the state recognition and proclamation of August 26th as Lineworker Appreciation Day.
