  • Some CEC employees let our lineman know today, they are loved! ...and appreciated. After all, today is Lineman Appreciation Day. The occasion was marked with an employee mini-parade, candy, bubbles and cheer in the afternoon. Breakfast and treats started the day. All to let the guys who do dangerous work in all kinds of weather conditions know that we think they're special.
