A Blessing Both Ways Con’t from Page 2


Cooperatives helping cooperatives


is not an uncommon event. It happens after ice storms, prairie fi res, tornadoes, hurricanes and fl oods. As Oklahomans, we understand the importance of helping our neighbor, lending a hand and rebuilding lives together.


It’s what


we do. We wouldn’t have it any other way.


The PEC linemen who are currently


helping to restore power near Smithville, Oklahoma, do so without hesitation. It’s their calling, and it’s in their blood. For


those left in the dark, what a blessing it is that there are such individuals who will leave their own comfortable homes and families when disaster strikes. They politely would say, however, the blessing is all theirs.


0781000601 One can never tell when nature’s next


event will threaten our own well-being, and PEC will be in need of assistance. There’s no doubt cooperatives will confront the challenge together, and will continue to defy the odds, one weather event and one hidden blessing at a time.
