In 2010, IBEW Local 965 began recognizing members and/or retirees for giving back to our communities through volunteering. We have established the "Charlie Award", which is named in recognition of the first recipient, Charlie Wilhelm. Charlie inspired the need to recognize members giving back to our communities through his involvement with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable activities.
At the March 2014 Executive Board meeting, Christopher Esser was chosen as this year's recipient. Christopher is an Alliant retiree out of Cassville. We hope to have a picture taken when his plaque is awarded.
We will award another recipient next year. If you know of someone that should be considered, feel free to submit an application or contact the Union office before the January 2015 Executive Board meeting. You are able to submit your own name for consideration.
