Celebrations planned for Kentucky Power’s 100th anniversary

by on May 28, 2019

ASHLAND, Ky. – Kentucky Power started delivering safe, reliable and affordable electricity to customers in eastern Kentucky on July 21, 1919. In celebration of its centennial, Kentucky Power pledged to deliver 100 Acts of Appreciation to say thank you to its customers.

The expression of gratitude extends to employees, too. Three district-wide celebration picnics are planned for June for employees, retirees and their families. The events will include food and family activities.

Hazard’s event is scheduled for June 8, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., at Carr Creek Lake’s Poplar Shelter. Activities include a playground and inflatables for kids, fishing, volleyball and horseshoe games.

Ashland’s event is June 15, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Boyd County Community Center. Activities will include inflatables for the kids and corn hole games.

Pikeville’s event is June 22, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Archer Park in Prestonsburg. Activities include a pool and playground for the kids.

“One-hundred years is a milestone worth celebrating,” said Kentucky Power President Brett Mattison. “We know we couldn’t have reached this point without our dedicated employees. Coming together outside of work as a Kentucky Power family is special and wonderful way to say thank you and celebrate the occasion.”

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Breanna Howell in Ashland at, Misty Baker in Hazard at, or Mike Hatfield in Pikeville at
