Naturist Legacy Park's new underground electrical wiring was installed in mid-July by CJ Electric Ltd. of Beausejour, Manitoba. Owner Clarence Lashek's large Ditch Witch quickly turned the park's campground into a maze of deep trenches. I and a fellow member were on hand to pull cables from large spools and lay them into the ground as directed by Clarence so that the trenches could be quickly backfilled. After the trenching was done, Clarence brought a large grey electrical cabinet which he positioned near the base of Manitoba Hydro's transformer pole. He also brought two electrical panels that would supply power to the campground's twenty seasonal lots. I and another member were on hand once again to help as required — mostly with our shovels, this time. I liked working with Clarence because he was all business when on the job site. I especially appreciated his willingness to permit me to work alongside him as a volunteer helper. This saved the corporation a lot of money and also allowed me to learn more about the inner workings of the new infrastructure. This acquired knowledge would in fact prove vitally important to Naturist Legacy Park several years later (in 2016).
