Memorial Day is a day to honor and appreciate the brave men and who lost their lives while defending their country. It is celebrated annually on the last Monday in May. The holiday originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. This day also is an opportunity for us to thank our veterans for their service and sacrifices they made for our country. Here at UGI Energy Services we did just that with the help of our VET (Veteran Employee Team) team! Brian Byerly (who came out from Pittsburgh!), Mindy Deamer, Greg Myers, Dante D’Alessandro and Jackie Nawa have done a spectacular job organizing this event.
On May 20, 2023, the Berks County Armed Forces Day Parade will be held in West Reading, Pennsylvania. This annual event celebrates and honors the brave men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It is a day for the community to come together, show their appreciation for our heroes, and remember the sacrifices they have made to keep our country safe.
Representatives from UGI Energy Service’s Veteran’s Employment Team (VET) had the opportunity to attend the annual Benefit for Berks County Veterans Presented by Customer's Bank on Friday, November 12th, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Reading, PA. The event featured guest speaker retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North. Proceeds from the event, for which UGIES and UGI Utilities were a Gold Sponsor, will go directly to support veterans in the Berks County community through the Military Assistance Fund of Berks County Community Foundation.
