The Central Electric Annual Member Meeting is right around the corner!

This year, the meeting is Friday, Oct. 7 at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center in Sanford. Food, registration and entertainment begin at 5:00 p.m., followed by the business meeting at 7:00 p.m. This year we will be celebrating the milestone 75th anniversary of the cooperative. Special guest David Browning, aka “The Mayberry Deputy,” and musical group About Time will be on hand for the special occasion.

In case you’ve never been, the annual gathering is where members learn about the cooperative business results from the previous year. Each member gets a complete update on how their money was spent. Members also have the opportunity to vote on the Central Electric Board of Directors.

Prizes and cash drawings will follow the conclusion of the meeting. Once you register, your name is entered into a drawing for $750, $150 and $100 cash prizes. There are also nice door prizes up for grabs, including new electronics, hardware and gift cards galore. One of these could be yours, so make sure you attend for your chance to win!

Make sure you bring your registration card that was mailed to you with the September issue of Carolina Country. That way we can get you registered and ready for the meeting. In the meantime, call (919) 774-4900 with any questions regarding the meeting. We hope to see you there on Oct. 7!
