October brings to mind pumpkins, Halloween, and beautiful fall foliage. But October is notable for another reason – it’s National Co-op Month! This is the time of year when cooperatives across the country, including Clark County REMC, celebrate what makes us different: the members we serve.
Something that sets our co-op apart from the traditional utility is the core principle, “Concern for Community.” During the months of October, November, and December, REMC will be collecting canned and non-perishable food items in exchange for a FREE energy kit. Over the past several years we have collected over 10,000 pounds of food to distribute to local food banks. The community benefits from these programs because of members like you. You empower the co-op through your membership, and by supporting community-focused programs like this.
We celebrate co-op month every October, but since 2019 marks our 80th anniversary, we are celebrating big! Join us each Friday in October to have lunch on us. Stop by our office for free hot dogs, chips, drinks and a special trick or treat bag for the kiddos. And the first 80 members to stop by each Friday will receive a special anniversary gift!
We hope you will think of Clark County REMC as more than your energy provider. We are a local business that supports our community and powers economic development and prosperity for all people.
