When you think about Indiana’s small towns and rural areas, many good things spring to mind. From churches, to schools, to the local fair. Neighbors talk and work together, and they look out for one another.
Two great examples of that spirit are the 4-H programs that teach important skills and instill values in young people, and the electric power cooperative that supplies safe, reliable power to farms and neighborhoods.
That connection explains the close relationship between Bartholomew County REMC and the Bartholomew County 4-H Fair, said BCREMC Vice President of Communications, Marty Lasure. “Both organizations emphasize service and cooperation. The same values that are at the heart of 4-H activities are what guide our board of directors and employees to serve our members’ needs.”
So it should come as no surprise that BCREMC has long been a strong supporter of our area’s 4-H Fair. A substantial donation to support the remodeling of the Family Arts Building was made at the end of 2020. A $75 discount is available to BCREMC members.
“A core value of Bartholomew County REMC is our commitment to the community. This was our way of supporting what the fairgrounds offers our community and the participating youth in 4-H,” Lasure said.
