Safety Use Caution with Fourth of July Fireworks


What would the Fourth of July be without cookouts, baseball games, and pyrotechnic dis- plays in the night sky? It is easy to forget - plosives, and carelessness could have deadly consequences. The federal government has

Energy Camp Winners Continued from page 1


Woodall School; Harleigh Green, the daughter of Lisa Flanagan, Jessica Johnson, daughter of Lyndon and Kristi Johnson, and Carly Sunday, daughter of Larry and Debbie Sunday attended this year’s camp with approximately 79 other outstand- ing students from Oklahoma.


“In my opinion, the most exciting part of the trip was climbing the poles like the linemen do and the dance,” said Johnson. At the camp, the students attended sessions on energy, electrical safety and rural electric careers. Other special activities of the four-day pro- gram included hands-on electrical demonstrations, and 194200 swim- ming.


“Other highlights of the trip were all the things we learned about electricity, and teamwork. We played a lot of teamwork games,” said Green.


The YouthPower Energy Camp is coordinated by Oklahoma As- sociation of Electric Coopera- tives (OAEC) and Lake Region Electric Cooperative.
