More than 350 people attend open house
Dawson PPD hosted an open house at the Lexington headquarters to celebrate the District’s 80th anniversary. The weather was perfect for the May 4, event, which was held as a business after hours event with the Lexington Chamber of Commerce. Guests toured the facility, learned about the District’s history and current engineering practices. A highlight was the opportunity to ride in a bucket truck.
A time capsule was buried to mark the occasion. Contents included financial reports, an insulator, a piece of conductor, linemen gear and Willie Wiredhand memorabilia. The time capsule will be opened on the District’s 100th anniversary in 2037.
