May 1st through the 5th was celebrated nationally as Drinking Water Week. During this week, MEWS worked to bring awareness to the vital role that water plays in our daily lives, while also showing appreciation to all our customers. Throughout National Drinking Water Week, MEWS hosted a community cook out and gave away rain gauges. Customers also had the opportunity to win water-related items such as Brita water pitchers, water hoses and sprinklers. Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us!

In April, Mayfield Electric & Water Systems’ employee, Meagan Arnold participated in Mayfield Middle School’s Health Fair. Many different businesses from our area were represented. Topics covered with the children included healthy eating, first aid, healthy life style choices and safety. MEWS took their opportunity to discuss the importance of Electrical Safety. A demonstration was presented to students on the personal protective equipment lineman must wear to stay safe on the job.

Mayfield Electric & Water Systems’ proudly participated in “Fishing for Education”, an event held by Mayfield-Graves County’s Parks and Recreation. The event was held to praise Mayfield and Graves County Middle Schoolers for their hard work throughout the year and the completion of testing. Students were thrilled to get out and enjoy a beautiful day at the park. MEWS’ set up a tent to provide water for the students and assisted them with fishing. Jesse Perry, Graves County Judge Executive, stated, “Fishing for Education allowed a lot of the students the opportunity to fish or bait a hook for the first time and utilize our local park. It could not have been a success without the participation of our sponsors”. Thank you to all those that participated in hosting such a wonderful end of the year event for students.
