The City of Wauchula thanks the City of Bartow for including Wauchula in their Lineworkeman Appreciation Day festivities. Lineworker Appreciation Day was celebrated in August. In Bartow, city officials recognized Lineworkers from their hometown as well as the cities of Fort Meade and Wauchula.
In 2012 the Florida House of Representatives created Lineworker Appreciation Day, honoring the thousands of men and women risking their lives every day to ensure reliable delivery of electricity throughout the state.
Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) produced a short video featuring the event in Bartow, recognizing Lineworkers who work tirelessly in varying conditions to make sure the lights stay on and what this event means to them.
