LED Retrofit Project

On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, a group of 4th Year Electrical Apprentices from the National Joint Apprentice Training Committee did vol­un­teer retro­fit work on Millington Arbela District Library to con­vert the building’s fix­tures from flo­res­cent to LED.

IBEW Local 948 of Flint and IBEW Local 557 of Saginaw teamed with the National Electrical Contractors Association and do­nated all of the ma­te­ri­als needed for the project.

The project was or­ga­nized by mem­ber, Robert McReynolds, of Millington, and Business Manager, John Bond Jr. Work was su­per­vised by Training Director Rick Mason and Instructor Ron Lord.

On be­half of the Millington Arbela District Library staff and board, a huge thank you goes out to every­one in­volved in this project.

For ap­pren­tice­ship in­quiries, please con­tact Flint/​Saginaw Electrical JATL at (810) 720-​0583
