Do you know why the cooperative holds an annual meeting each year? It gives you the opportunity to vote for your board of directors, hear important financial information and, of course, register for great door prizes!

LaGrange County REMC’s annual meeting is a community gathering where members can meet new neighbors or catch up with old acquaintances. As our lives get busier with the errands of life and more of our interactions with others are online, we must renew the value of face-to-face human connections. Very few organizations are uniquely positioned like ours to bring together members from our local communities.

While rural Americans probably do a better job of staying connected to our neighbors than most, it is not something we should take for granted. The simple act of smiling, saying hello and shaking someone’s hand truly lifts everyone involved.

On Saturday, June 8, LaGrange County REMC’s annual meeting is designed to take care of the important business of our co-op and the equally important business of building a sense of community. All cooperatives serve both an economic and social purpose. While safe, reliable and affordable electricity is crucial to our mission, improving the quality of life for members is at the core of what we do daily.

If you have not attended the annual meeting in the past or if it has been a few years, we urge you to come out and celebrate with your fellow co-op members.

We get out of life what we put into it. LaGrange County REMC is connected to you by more than just power lines. We are your neighbors, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, June 8!
