      On Saturday June 8, 2013, the final phase of the electrical upgrades to the DuBois Area Historical Society began. Hallstrom-Clark, Elec_6-8-13_11_Emily_Rosenberg.jpgInc. of DuBois was the contractor for the project with IBEW Local No. 5 Apprenticeship Program providing free labor as part of their community service offering.

      The first phase of the electrical upgrades provided by Hallstrom-Clark Electric of DuBois and the IBEW Local No.5 began on May 19, 2012 when new energy efficient lighting and new electrical wiring were installed in the downstairs areas.

      This year’s projects included new energy efficient lighting installed in the garage area, the upstairs rooms and in the display windows of the George Nye Annex. Additional outside lighting was installed to ensure the safety of volunteers and visitors.

      The new lighting in the garage area is especially important because the theme of this year’s Spirit of DuBois Lantern Walk is the 125th Anniversary of the Great Fire of 1888. On October 12, tours will begin from the front entrance of the Historical Society and end as tours return through the garage area. The new lighting will enhance the historical displays of the DuBois Area Volunteer Fire Departments.

      President Ruth Gregori said, “All of these electrical projects that have been completed in our buildings could not have been accomplished without this Community Service Program provided by the men and women of the IBEW Local No.5 and Hallstrom-Clark Electric.”
