MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
Happy Fourth of July! Our Independence Day is a date filled with pride that is equally displayed with the flag of our great nation. These days, it seems that more than ever, the U.S. flag is on display at our homes and places of business. Maybe it's just because I have noticed it this way more recently, but I do know that we celebrate July 4th as one our biggest and most important holidays. Parades, fireworks, vacations, and picnics bring many of us together as family and friends to create good times and fond memories. We have not forgotten our history, the high cost of our freedoms; and that is why we will always celebrate, with pride, all that we do to preserve our great heritage of independence. Let's all celebrate this day, and many more Independence Days, filled with the pride and endurance that we have built together.
A holiday for rest, relaxation, and quality time spent with family is another most welcome symbol of this day. It seems to me that too often, in our line of work, the need to balance life and work is shoved aside in order to respond to sudden outages or failed facilities spewing dangerous gases. For those among us who are fortunate to be off from work, enjoy the weekend, Brothers and Sisters; and for those who are on duty or who choose to sacrifice precious time off to answer an emergency call, Thank You.
Happy Independence Day!
Yours in Solidarity,
John P. Kaiser
