2022 Annual Meeting
June 10th turned out to be a beautiful day for a picnic . . . oh, and the Annual Meeting. Wagon Wheel Catering prepared a delicious meal of roast beef, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, and cookies. It was so good, as all 287 guests would agree. While folks ate, Jerilyn Wiseman and Ty Taylor of Mendenhall Crossing entertained the crowd with down home country music. To open the meeting Jerilyn played the national anthem on her fiddle. With the calm of the evening and the birds chirping, it was absolutely beautiful.
Dave Hayden’s crew, Jalyn Klauzer & Kayla Olsen, kept the kiddos busy by giving them rides in the horse drawn wagon. I did see a few adults sneak a ride as well.
The business meeting was well attended. Albert Paul, President of Southeast Electric Board and Tye Williams, General Manager gave short reports. DeeDee Isaacs, MECA President, shared news about what the statewide organization has been involved in and what they are looking at in the future. Jeremy Mahowald, Upper Missouri General Manager, gave us an update as to what is happening at their level. We were also very pleased that Chris Christensen, NRECA Board President, came to share his vision for NRECA and a few great stories.
The door prizes are always a big hit and without our donors we would not be able to offer as many. Anixter/Wesco, Electrical Consultants Inc., A&A Stieg Wholesale, NISC and Red Rock have been strong supporters of this popular segment of the annual meeting. The big winners this year were members Robin Kawecki and J.O. Tooke. They walked away with $500.00 cash in their pockets.
Hope to see you all next year!
