NORTHWESTERN ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC.


It pays to be a member NWEC returns $1,011,970 in capital credits


our electric cooperative belongs to you and the other members who receive electric service from Northwestern Elec- tric. Your ownership interest in the Co-op is known as capital credits.


Y At the end of each


year, after financial obligations have been met, the Co-op determines if there are excess revenues called margins. These margins are allocated to the members as capital credits based upon their payments for electricity during that year.


When the Co-op’s financial condi- tions permit, your Board of Directors votes to refund the capital credits to you, our members. This year, NWEC will pay back $1,011,970 to members


Hidden account number contest February’s numbers went un-


claimed. They belonged to Don Harper and Milton Smith.


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 $100 each. Happy hunting!


1 box Red Velvet cake mix


ingredients needed to make cake (eggs, oil & water) 2 (3.4 oz.) boxes instant Cheesecake-flavored pudding 4 cups milk


1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed 10 Oreo cookies, crushed (optional)


Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9x13 cake. Once cake comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for just a couple of


minutes. With a wooden spoon handle or some other similarly-sized object, begin poking holes in the warm cake. Be sure to poke right down to the bottom of the cake.


In a medium bowl, whisk together dry pudding mix with 4 cups of milk. Whisk until all the lumps are gone. Pour pudding over cake. Spread it all out and using the back of the spoon, gently push pudding down into the holes.


Put the cake into the fridge to set and cool (about 2 hours). Once your cake has completely cooled, spread on whipped topping evenly over the pudding layer. Spread crushed Oreos onto the top of the cake. Keep refrigerated. Recipe from thecountrycook.net.
