74th annual meeting a success


FOR the second straight year, members of Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative encountered less-


than-ideal weather conditions as they gathered in Grove for the popular yearly event known as “REC Day.” The cooperative’s 74th annual meeting, held Saturday, September 15, was a repeat of last year’s rain-soaked event, with devoted members once again determined not to be kept away by some much-needed precipitation. Cooperative members simply rediscovered long-


forgotten umbrellas and, with smiles on their faces, assembled themselves in the comfortable confines of the Grove Civic Center for a day of fellowship and fun. “It was another proud day for our cooperative,” said General Manager Anthony Due. “To witness the loyalty of our membership on a day like today was truly a demon- stration of the committment they have to this organization. I believe we all feel a strong sense of pride to be living here in northeast Oklahoma and to be a part of this great cooperative.”


Thanks to the faithful participation, Northeast Okla- homa Electric Cooperative succeeded in achieving quorum for the 14th consecutive year, dating back to 1999. Registra- tion totaled 1,541 on the day. Thousands more—counting family and friends—passed through the doors during what was the most important day of the year for the cooperative. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, there were a number of reasons for members to attend the yearly gather- ing. Along with an opportunity to participate in the

cooperative’s unique democratic process by voting in the trustee elections, there were numerous prize giveaways, complimentary food and beverages, low-cost health screen- ings furnished by staff from Craig General Hospital, co-op member/vendor displays, arts & crafts booths, and some outstanding musical entertainment from local bands, the Barnes Family and Bow Bailey & The Craig County Sound. The day was viewed as an overwhelming success by cooperative officials in light of the weather. Quorum requirements were met at 11:35 a.m. when Bluejacket resident Jerry Williams and his family passed through registration. Williams, the 1,433rd cooperative member registered, was presented with a special prize for helping the co-op achieve quorum.
