Fellowship and Memories
June 21, 2019
It was a time of fellowship and memories as employees and retirees gathered at Penelec locations across northern and western Pennsylvania last week to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary.
Employees enjoyed a celebratory breakfast at all Penelec facilities on Monday, June 10. Attendees watched a video featuring congratulatory remarks by FirstEnergy President and CEO Chuck Jones and Penelec Regional President Nick Austin, as well as a look back at the company’s history and a few memories shared by retirees.
Retirees were invited to visit nine Penelec locations at various times throughout the week, including the Erie headquarters on June 10, Altoona Service Center on June 13 and Johnstown facility on June 14. They renewed old acquaintances, reviewed memorabilia on display and reminisced about their careers “back in the day.”
In addition, the anniversary was officially recognized by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives on June 11, with a proclamation that Nick accepted on behalf of the company (see photo).
