Climbing for Lost Linemen™
June 18th, 2021
Annually we hold a ceremony honoring all brothers who lost their lives on the line from June-June. In addition, Honoree forms can be submitted to honor any fallen lineworker who passed due to other causes, and from any year. The ceremony is held on the eve of the NSUJL annual rodeo. Each fallen brother’s name is written on a lantern and one by one brothers climb the pole and hang the lantern on a line strung in between two poles. At the top they then light the candle within and take a moment of silence for the fallen brother. This event is by far the most symbolic of all we do. Watching the lanterns rise and all brothers pay respect together is a tribute that cannot be described in words. Lanterns are then given and/or mailed to the families of those who were honored at the ceremony.
