77th REC Day full of suprises and fun N


ortheast Oklahoma Electric Coopera ve members who a end the organiza on’s 77th


annual mee ng can expect to have the usual great  me. They can also expect a few changes.


REC Day will return to the Grove Civic Center on Saturday, September 19, 2015. Registra on runs from 8 a.m. un l noon. Each member household will receive a special edi on REC hat and fl eece travel blanket just for registering.


“They say diff erent is be er, so we are shaking things up a li le,” said Cindy Hefner, NEOEC’s Manager of Public Rela ons. “Hopefully, our members will be as excited as we are about the new ideas we’ve incorporated into this year’s REC Day.”


Be it entertainment, food, a rac ons or prizes, there will be something new for everyone to enjoy at the big annual event. One exci ng change is the addi on of a car show for 2015. Owners of 1970s muscle cars are invited to cruise on over to Grove for a shot at some nice prizes. The car show is limited to the fi rst 50 entrants. Register today by contac ng show organizer Roxann Wilson at 918-256-9323 or emailing: roxann. wilson@neelectric.com. A copy of the registra on form is included on page 12.


A new style of entertainment also awaits co-op members. In keeping with a 70s theme, disco tribute band Superfreak will take center stage at the civic center for a groovin’ good  me. One of the ho est, most-requested dance bands in the country, Superfreak has performed on Broadway, the Tonight Show, and TNN -- just to name


a few. They’ll deliver an entertaining show, complete with stage ligh ng, colorful costumes and choreography. The band will play from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.


If disco isn’t your cup of tea, have no fear: REC Day will feature a second stage outdoors this year. Mosey outside near the kidzone and enjoy the bluegrass stylings of Dylan Hall and his band, Pure Tradi on. A na ve of Jay, Hall is a homegrown talent with a knack for pleasing a crowd.


With all of the ac vity, co-op members are sure to work up an appe te. This year’s new-look lunch menu features Frito chili pie and a selec on of cold drinks. A convenient ea ng area will once again be furnished outside under the tent.


Members will be asked to help the coopera ve take care of some business by cas ng a vote for one trustee in each of three districts during the general elec on. While Sharron Gay (District 6) and Bill Kimbrell (District 8) are running unopposed, District 4 will have two candidates from which to choose, including incumbent John Myers and challenger Tom Kemohah. There are no proposed bylaw amendments on this year’s ballot.


It is important to note one change in the registra on process that will be strictly enforced.


“It is impera ve that individuals who register be listed on the account itself,” explained the coopera ve’s Manager of Offi ce Services, Susanne Frost. “This is an important security measure we will be enforcing going forward.”


September 2015 - 5


Members who register qualify for numerous prize drawings. This year’s grand prize is a Raven 7100 MPV. The Raven is a hybrid mower, generator and mul -purpose vehicle – all in one. Other prizes include a high-effi ciency washer/dryer set, fl at screen television, and much more. Four children and one adult will win new 2-in-1 computers. And let’s not forget about the $500 electric credits that will be awarded to one member from each of the coopera ve’s nine districts.


Once registered, members need not be present to win most prizes (the adult computer is the lone excep on). Names of winners will be announced at the mee ng. If you are one of the lucky winners and aren’t present to claim your prize, the co-op will contact you and let you know within a few days.


Fresh doughnuts and hot coff ee will also greet morning arrivals. A brief business mee ng will take place at 12:15 p.m., during which  me the results from the trustee elec on and prize drawing winners will be announced.


Younger co-op members always have a blast playing carnival games and
