The fun run is part of Beaver’s 2014 Cimarron Territory Celebration, which includes its 45th Annual World Championship Cow Chip Throwing Contest.


TCEC will have an entry in the Cow Chip Chili Cook-off on April 12. Cooperative employees will also participate in the fun run and the cow chip throw on April 19.


In addition to its support of the Cimarron Territory Celebration and Cow Chip Throw, TCEC is a platinum member of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce.


“Commitment to Community is one of our cooperative principles,” Chris Purdy, vice president of Member Solutions said. “That commitment goes beyond financial support to the involvement of our employees. We aim to improve the quality of life for our members. Supporting our local communities is one of many ways we do that.”


JuliAnn Graham, communications coordinator at TCEC, contributed an article about the Cow Chip Throw to Oklahoma Living magazine this month. Be sure to check it out! n

She titled the photo ‘Cowboy Wisdom.’ Eric Elliott, left, listens to Dale Hester during Elliott’s cattle branding south of Turpin. Sandra Elliott said the input of elders is a must in all aspects of life.


TCEC is now accepting entries for the second quarter theme of ‘countryside.’ Members are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme when submitting their photos. Photos can be submitted using the online form found at www.tcec.coop or via email to info@tcec.coop.


“Our landscape is beautiful,” Chris Purdy, vice president of Member Solutions, said. “I’m really looking forward to seeing the submissions from our members in this quarter’s contest.”


He encouraged members to flip through their photo archives for possible entries since the photos aren’t required to be taken during any particular time frame.


“Tis contest is a fun way to engage our members in their cooperative,” Purdy said. “We hope to see as many entries as possible.”


Winning photos will be published in the newsletter and on the cooperative’s social channels and website. All photos submitted become property of TCEC for use in print and/or on the Internet. One winner per month will receive a special Oklahoma Living magazine 65th Anniversary Prairie Flavors Cookbook.


Anyone with questions regarding the contest or its rules should contact JuliAnn Graham, communications coordinator, at 580-652-2418 or info@tcec.coop. n
