$250 Scholarship Winners Attend


It’s that time of year again – annual


meeting time! On behalf of Harmon Electric Association, we’d like to personally invite you to join us on April 3, 2015 at the Hollis Civic Center. We look forward to gathering with you – members of the co-


op community – to catch up, hear what you have to say and enjoy some good food and fellowship. Tis event is not only a chance to visit with members of


our co-op community – it’s also a great opportunity to learn about programs offered by Harmon Electric and get to know your co- op staff. Our annual meeting makes it possible for us to gather feedback from you by providing a forum where you can let us know how we can better serve you and your family. Tis is an occasion to discuss and learn more about the


issues affecting our local communities. It’s also an opportunity for you to exercise one of the greatest benefits of being a member of an electric co-op, by voting for the upcoming year’s board of directors. Harmon Electric is not owned by far away investors, and


it is not run by an appointed board of directors. We are run by a democratically elected board of directors – a board who is given the privilege to serve because of your vote. Our directors are members of your community. Tey are


concerned with the issues you face every day because they face them too. And don’t forget – all members of Harmon Electric are eligible to run for the board – that includes you! A democratic and open election is one of the many


elements that make our electric cooperative stand out from other utilities. Having a voice in who makes the major decisions that directly affect your life and your family is a right we all share as Americans. We all vote for our state and federal Congressional representatives, but not every American has the right to vote for those who will represent community interests within their electric utility. You have that right, so why not exercise it? Rest assured, no matter what happens, we remain


dedicated to providing you with safe, reliable and affordable electric service, but we encourage you to take part in helping us improve how we deliver that service. So make it a point to join us on April 3rd at our annual meeting. We promise we will do our best to make it worth your while!
