Massive effort to restore service

To the editor:

During this Christmas season, as you well know, our community faced a terrible situation with the loss of natural gas which warms many of our homes and businesses.  Thankfully, Semco, and local employees Dick Haagsma and Mike Kosht were here and moved heaven and earth to get service restored.  As many of you know, Semco brought in crews from all around the state of Michigan to assist in the shut off of every single service, assist in the massive repair of the gas line, and relight individual services.  These dedicated people worked around the clock, visiting homes at 4 am, to make sure that we could all enjoy a warm Christmas.  On behalf of the Village of L’Anse, we thank you for your commitment to our community.
