National Lineman Appreciation Day 

America’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. On April 10, 2017, Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC), along with cooperatives across the country, will honor the hardworking men and women who often endure challenging conditions to keep our lights on.

Our members have expressed appreciation for our linemen in well over 100 comments on social media. Below are a few messages of thanks!
