A Family Affair: Oyster Creek Celebrates its History and Legacy with a Special Event

 

 The Oyster Creek Generating Station kicked off a formal month-long celebration of the 48 year old facility's history and legacy on April 26 with a special Bring Your Family to Work Day. Nearly 800 employees and their children, grandchildren, spouses and other loved ones, spent the day learning just what it is that their family members do as Oyster Creek employees.

Guests began and ended their visit at the newly opened Oyster Creek Hall of Memories, an exhibition-style museum that celebrates the station's history, legacy and impact on the community. Then, guests could visit other areas throughout the Training Center, including but not limited to the Control Room Simulator, a video-activated firearms training simulator, and confined space rescue drills.

Many family members took bus trips to the actual generating station, itself, where their family members served as formal escorts and guides, showing the visitors the inside of reactor and turbine buildings, and, of course, the exact locations where they work.

Huge picnic tents filled with food catered by local eateries was there for everyone who needed a break from all the activities.
