Recently, Doug King, Assistant Business Manager, was spending time with his father-in-law; Hank Leblanc of Amherst, Nova Scotia. Over the years Hank had told Doug stories of when he used to work with Nova Scotia Power & the IBEW, building transmission lines across Nova Scotia in the 1950’s. Hank’s 89th birthday was Jan 3, 2017. Hank was born in 1928. Local 1928 now offers apparel available for purchase at the union hall, so Doug thought this would be a unique birthday gift for Hank. Having been a former IBEW member Hank was proud to wear Local 1928’s gear with his birth year on it. January 3rd, 2017 was declared Hank Leblanc Day in his honour. Happy Birthday Hank!
