Energy Effi ciency Tip of the Month


During summer months, our homes can be extremely hot, making living conditions uncomfortable. Before you


fi re up your air conditioner, try cooling off with a ceiling fan fi rst. Using ceiling fans can actually raise your thermostat setting by 4 degrees and still feel just as comfortable.

LOCAL STUDENTS RETURN


FROM YOUTH TOUR TRIP Three local students were among more than 1,500 high school students visiting Washington, D.C. in June for the 2014 Washington Youth Tour. This trip was sponsored by Lake Region Electric Cooperative (LREC) along with hundreds of oth- er electric cooperatives across Oklahoma and the country. Bethany Shultz of Hulbert, daughter of David and Julie Shultz; Hallie Barnes of Porter, daughter of Kent and Diana Barnes; and Paige Taylor of Hulbert, daughter of Bennie and Shelly Taylor., joined 72 other Oklahoma students for this great educational event. “LREC is proud to offer these extraordinary students the opportunity to visit Washington,

D.C.,” said Glen Clark, LREC Youth Tour Coordina- tor.


“The Youth Tour provides a great way for our future


leaders to learn about government and electric coop- eratives. By investing in these students, we believe we are investing in the future of our communities,” added Clark.


LREC has sponsored the Washington Youth Tour


for more than 40 years. The trip is designed to edu- cate students about our Nation’s Capital, the sacrifi ces made for our freedom and the value of the coopera- tive way of business. The students return home with a greater appreciation of our nation’s leaders, a respect for the beauty of Washington, D.C., and friendships that will last a lifetime. “The most exciting part of the trip was the new friendships I gained, listening to our congressmen speak, and looking through all the interesting books in the Library of Congress,” said Barnes. Applications for the 2015 Youth Tour will be avail-


able in January 2015, at the LREC offi ce, or by calling (918) 772-2526.
