Harrison REMC is pleased to invite you to the 86th Annual Meeting! This year’s Annual Meeting will give members two options to attend and vote. The first day will be Wednesday, May 8, and members can attend any time from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Harrison County Fairgrounds. This meeting will allow members to gather for a more social event. There will be registration, voting, food, bingo, children’s area, and informational booths. There will be no drive-thru voting option at the fairgrounds. On Thursday, May 9, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., there will be a drive-thru only event at the REMC office in Corydon. On this day, members will register and vote from their cars only. Offering these two options gives members the opportunity to choose what works best for them.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the meetings and would like to give a little recap of last year.

The spring and summer of 2023 brought one of the more severe storm seasons incurred in over the last 20 years to our region and with that we had an increase in power outages. Due to the damage caused by the storms and winds, some members were out for a few days. As always, we appreciate the understanding and patience members showed the cooperative employees during these trying times as we worked to restore power.

Being an electric cooperative means that we are service focused, and we are a non-profit organization. Profits that are generated either go into maintaining and building our infrastructure, or the co-op shares the profits that occurred in past years with members who consumed electricity in those years. In July 2023, we refunded $1 million in capital credits to members served in portions of 1987 and 1988. The cooperative has refunded over $13 million to REMC members.

The purpose of a cooperative is to realize the economic and social needs of the organization’s members and its surrounding community. Cooperatives often have a strong commitment to their community and a focus on strengthening the community they exist in or serve. Harrison REMC is one of the few local utility companies in our service area. When you call the co-op during the business day, you get an actual employee who lives in the local community. Harrison REMC offers events such as the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, a firemen/emergency personnel seminar on safety, a recycling/shredding event, and programs such as Youth Tour, scholarships, Camp Kilowatt, and an electric equipment rebate program.

The employees at the cooperative work hard to keep your power on and restore that power as quickly as possible. During these times, safety and protecting our employees is a top priority, so again we appreciate your patience when you are without power. We are thankful for the members of Harrison REMC and are committed to serving you. We hope to see you at one of the Annual Meeting days. Please review this issue for additional information about the Annual Meeting, voting options, bill credits, and more.
