As part of a strong holiday program, Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 668 puts up the entire holiday lighting display for downtown Lafayette, Ind. Between 25 and 50 volunteers show up weeks in advance of the local holiday festival and install the lights in the downtown plaza and county courthouse rotunda, a tradition the local has taken part in for 65 years. Members continue to make sure all the lights are working and fix any problems that come up throughout the holiday season.
IBEW Local 668 doesn't stop with lighting the community. Its members are distributing hams to local agencies to give out for Christmas dinner, contributing to "Coats for Kids" and "Toys for Tots" drives, working as Salvation Army bell ringers and joining with the Tippecanoe-Clinton County UAW to serve Christmas dinner to area homeless people.
