Professional Electric Products Co. (PEPCO), Eastlake, Ohio, celebrated 40 years of serving the Cleveland electrical community with an "Event of the Decades" celebration. PEPCO transformed the 80,000-sq-ft warehouse at its headquarters into a "Four Decades of Fun" theme park where over 1,200 customers, vendors and others got a chance to relive the '60s, '70s, '80s through retro games of the '90s. Games included "To Tell the Doggone Truth" featuring impersonators of George Clooney, Grandpa Munster, Groucho Marx and The Godfather, and "PEPCOPOLY," in which contestants moved around a life-size game board to win prize packages. Attendees won two Harley Davidson motorcycles donated by Eagle Electric and hundreds of other prizes ranging from golf clubs to laptop computers. The evening's entertainment was provided by Disco Inferno and a live disc jockey.

That was true even before e-commerce, LED lighting and distributed generation began to disrupt so many of the electrical industry’s traditional practices.
