WoodmenLife Sign Project Wraps With Big Reveal & Moonlight Thank Yous
The months-long initiative to change the “Woodmen” sign at the top of the tower to “WoodmenLife” wrapped up Wednesday night with a virtual party on Facebook.
Viewers tuned in from across America to see the letters revealed, and also got to learn about the tower’s history and some big names in Omaha’s business world, like Leo A Daly architecture and the Caniglia family, known widely for the restaurants they’ve run.
Moments later engineers also flipped the switch for the LEDs that light the tower itself, shining a light on hundreds of causes each year that benefit our community and country, support patriotism and bolster better health. To learn more about these lightings, visit our Tower Lighting Partnership website.
