Electricians donate time to Bentleyville project

IBEW members helped with a Bentleyville project.IBEW Local 242 and Holden Electric joined forces by donating all material and labor for a volunteer project to help Bentleyville expand its Christmas spirit to all. The project entailed installing a 100-amp breaker panel, multiple receptacles, heaters and LED lights in a cargo container. The container will be used by volunteers to test lights and to build more lighted props for Bentleyville. After the lighting project is completed at Bentleyville, this container will be used to store wheelchairs and strollers for the public to use while touring the display.
“I’m proud to have so many members willing to donate their time to help light up a Duluth city park for their local community and tourists to enjoy during the holiday season,” said Don Smith, business manager at Local 242. “A big thank you to Rick Osbakken, owner of Holden Electric, for donating his vans, tools and materials to be used for this project, and to Eddy Symons, journeyman wireman with IBEW Local 242, for engineering and spearheading this project. One we are nothing, two or more we are one.” From left: Nick Glumac, Nate Ward, Miles Thomasen, Bo Higgins, Eddy Symons and Nick Osbakken.
