NH Utilities plans events to show its appreciation

This spring, New Holstein Utilities (NHU) postponed National Drinking Water Week because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Municipal electric utilities across the country celebrate Public Power Week in early October. This year, NHU has decided to combine both events into a “Customer Appreciation Week.” The utility event will be held Oct. 1-7.

“The pandemic has been a challenge for all of us,” Randy Jaeckels, NHU general manager, said. “We felt that there is importance to getting back to some sense of normalcy. We didn’t want to postpone another event, so we decided we would combine the two events and thank our customers for their continued support of our local utility. NHU is proud to provide reliable, safe and affordable water and electricity to the New Holstein community. Some changes have been made to our celebration to respect distancing and yet still have an enjoyable event. NHU will offer some giveaways and is also asking the community to support two efforts to help bring awareness to the local food pantry and the Community Chest.”
