Harmon Electric Bylaws Bylaws Concerning Nomination and Election of Trustees


I don’t think there is a more exciting


time of year than the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As a child, I remember taking a piece of candy


from my family’s advent calendar each night, the anticipation building as we counted down the days to Dec. 25. While the holiday season is full of excitement, we sometimes miss the magic as we juggle hefty shopping lists, parties, and wrapping up work projects before the end of the year. These tasks can add stress - not joy - to the holiday season. However, those of us at Harmon Electric Association want you to think of your electric co-op as an early holiday gift wrapped with several layers of value. As a member and owner of Harmon Electric you receive


several money-saving perks that come in handy at this time of year. Did you know you can save at local and national businesses with your Co-op Connections® Card simply for being a member of Harmon Electric? You might even fi nd coupons for the top secret ingredients of your famous green bean casserole at www.connections.coop.


So before you do your holiday


shopping or baking, see what kinds of deals are waiting for you. Expecting a lot of family visits over the holidays? Every kilowatt-hour saved counts! Our energy effi ciency experts offer tips and advice on how to manage your electricity use. We can also suggest more effi cient holiday lighting options. Folks in Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas created your


electric co-op over 75 years ago to power our community and empower members to improve their quality of life. That’s our purpose. It warms my heart to see staff going the extra mile to power our community and make life a bit better for everyone during the holidays. Avoid getting caught in the hustle and bustle of the season.


Take a moment to watch the excitement in the eyes of your children and grandchildren as they count down the days. Enjoy every last piece of fudge. Then, after gifts are wrapped and meals cooked, take time to look into the faces of those around your table. They are your purpose. The rest of the holiday scramble is just details, and we can help you take care of a few of those. I hope you and your family have a Very Merry Christmas!
