succeed. Why? The answer’s simple: we live here too.


D Local people working for local


good. That’s the essence of the Sev- enth Cooperative Principle, “Concern for Community,” one of seven guide- lines that governs electric cooperative operations.


First and foremost, NWEC strengthens our communities by do- ing what we do best: providing a safe and reliable supply of electricity at an affordable cost. As our service area grows, so does our distribution system. So it’s easy to see why strengthening the local economy makes business sense. Your board of directors and the employees support policies and proj- ects that are good for the communities we serve because what’s good for our community is good for NWEC. On February 12, citizens of Wood- ward County will go to the polls to vote in a special election for im- provements to the Woodward County Fairgrounds and Expo facility. The


Hidden account number contest Last month’s numbers went


unclaimed. They belonged to Dirk Dewald and Robert Jackson.


For those of you who aren’t


familiar with the contest, this is how it works. We have hidden two account numbers somewhere in the articles in this newsletter. The numbers will always be enclosed in parentheses and will look similar to this example (XXXXXX).


If you recognize your account


number, all you have to do is give us a call on or before the 8th of the current month and we’ll give you a credit on your bill for the amount stated.


This month’s numbers are worth $75 each. Happy hunting!

Page 3 Fairground improvements would benefit NWEC


irectors and employees at Northwestern Electric want to see the communities we serve


proposed renovations would offer improved handicap access, new rest- rooms, a climate controlled environ- ment, better acoustics and a larger meeting area. NWEC’s marketing and key ac- counts coordinator, Melissa Washmon, serves on the Woodward County Fair- grounds Task Force. She said, “This project would benefit NWEC tremen- dously, as the current fairgrounds are becoming increasingly inadequate for the annual meeting of our mem- bers. With almost 2,000 members and guests in attendance, a new venue would allow NWEC the opportunity to improve upon the service our members expect from the annual meeting. The new venue will have proper heating and cooling to accommodate whatever weather comes our way and would provide adequate facilities for those in attendance.”


At NWEC, we take great pride in teaching the value of cooperative membership to children – after all, they’re our members-in-training. We open doors for our young people with scholarship programs and the annual


Rural Electric Youth Tour trip to Washington, D.C. We also provide a wide variety of pro- grams that benefit youth from safety demonstrations to sponsoring many students involved in athlet- ics, 4-H and FFA programs. We know that many of our youth participate in events which utilize the fairgrounds. The cooperative business model is community driven and doesn’t stop at your light switch. Your co-op was formed locally, and it’s still managed by your friends and neighbors. By working hand-in-hand with members to meet local quality of life needs, electric cooperatives can build lasting relationships with their members that extend far beyond the delivery of safe, reliable, and affordable electricity.


Tyson Littau, CEO I


would like to encourage you to go vote and make your voice heard.
