February 5, 2009

The Manitoba Electrical League (MEL) annual general meeting and charity dinner underwent a major face-lift this year, says executive director Dave Foreman, “and the results were nothing short of spectacular”. Attendance was up 16% over last year, and 15 companies who had not purchased tickets previously bought them this year.

The
event was held at Club Regent Casino in Jaguars Dance Club and featured
popular local tribute band, “Free Ride”, as well as Anders Magic, a
silent auction and a draw for a $4000 travel voucher. The silent
auction raised $7700 for the Firefighter’s Burn Fund, and the winner of
the  travel voucher was Ken Johnson of Electro-Tech.




Many of
MEL’s member companies came forward with sponsorships and prize
donations, and the league thanks them all for their support: AAA
Electric 1988 Ltd.; ABB; Abco Supply; Advance Pro; Allco Electrical
Ltd.; B&B Electrical; Carlyle Printers; Comstock; FLIR; Hi-Tech;
IBEW; IPEX; Leviton; Manitoba Hydro; MCW/AGE; McCaine Electric;
National Ind. Comm.; Nedco; Nor-Tec Electric; Philips; Schneider
Electric; Siemens Canada; Texcan; Tri-Star; Vipond Inc.; and Wesco.




MEL also
extends a thanks to Randy Knutson and his AGM committee (comprising
Dale Hendry, Garry Pestaluky and Louis Boisjoli) for their effort.
