Lapp Electric Turns 50 – Week 40 (Positive Attitude, Modular Building Wiring & IEC Troubleshooting Seminar)

It is that time of year…Fall, which means sports. We are in the midst of football season, both the NFL and College football. The NHL and NBA recently started their seasons and the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros wrapped up the 2019 World Series last evening.

In 1969, the New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles played to determine who would be World Series Champions. In what was considered “one of the greatest upsets in Series history”, the New York Mets won in five games. 

Did you know that the Washington Nationals (one of this year’s World Series Contenders) has a link to 1969 as well? The Washington Nationals were founded in 1969 as the Montreal Expos. Prior to the 2005 season, the team moved to Washington and became known as the Washington Nationals.

52 Memories of 50 Years

In October 2016, we hosted the Central Pennsylvania Independent Electrical Contractors – IEC for a Troubleshooting Seminar. The seminar taught by Glen Mazur included two sessions. We were thrilled to have all our technicians attend one of the two sessions.
