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.
Today, November 11th, we observe a historic day with deep significance, Veterans Day. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’, Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs, explains the meaning of this day as “…A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.” We are proud to honor all our veterans and thankful for our internal Veteran Employee Team (VET) that works hard all year long to support the communities where we live and work. UGI Energy Services is proud to honor the bravery and patriotism of our veteran community. We thank them for their dedication and service to our country. As a company, we strive to honor and support our veteran community in a variety of ways. We are proud to share the activities that our VET team has engaged in over the past year.
