Serving our members

As the holidays quickly approach and we begin to plan holiday and family activities, we would like to take the time to express our gratitude to all for your membership in your electric cooperative.

We think it is important to share co-op events and developments with you. While our priority is always to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy, we also believe our role is to work for the good in the communities we serve. With this in mind, I would like to share some of the great things that are going on at Harrison REMC.

lend a hand

This month, members will receive an insert in their November bills about the Lend a Hand program. Lend a Hand is designed to help REMC members who are 150 percent below the poverty level pay their electric bill in times of need. Members can make a one-time or monthly donation on their bill. Through Harrison REMC, this money is given to local community service agencies for distribution.

Because Harrison REMC serves parts of five southern Indiana counties, contributions will be distributed in the county from which they were received. Thank you to members who give graciously every year. To sign up, flip to page 9.

Collecting items for community needs

This month Harrison REMC will collect food items for distribution to various community agencies. Members can bring in five items to receive an energy efficiency kit, up to one kit per membership, while supplies last. We ask that you please adhere to the following items: boxed cereal, canned soups, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly, toilet tissue and napkins/paper towels. See page 7 for more information.

santa is coming

Come by and get your picture taken with Santa! Santa will be at the REMC office on Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. A photo of each child will be available at no charge, and parents are welcome to bring a camera to take their own photo. We look forward to seeing everyone!

Just a reminder that the REMC office will be closed on Nov. 22 and 23 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We want to wish all members and their families a happy Thanksgiving!
