“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
In the spirit of this quote by author William Arthur Ward, I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your membership in our electric cooperative. Because of your connection to Clark County REMC, we are able to make our community a better place.
As part of the cooperative business model, one of our core principles is “Concern for Community.” While our priority is always to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy, we view our role in the community as a catalyst for good.
We work closely with our local schools to provide safety demonstrations, award college scholarships, sponsor sixth graders on an “electrifying” energy summer camp, support after-prom programs and help aid schools that promote academic achievements.
Clark County REMC also participates in an annual Youth Tour where we take our community’s brightest young people to Washington, D.C., for a week-long immersion to experience democracy in action. The trip is inspirational for many students, and we are both humbled and honored to be a part of this leadership development journey. Ultimately, the larger community benefits from these programs because of you! You empower the co-op through your membership and through your participation in and support of these programs.
Because we are locally governed by members of our community, we are able to get a first-hand perspective on community priorities, thereby enabling us to make more informed decisions on long-term investments.
Clark County REMC was established 79 years ago to bring electricity to our area when no one else would. The cooperative is a reflection of our local community and its evolving needs. Together, let’s continue making our corner of the world a better place. We can’t do it without you, and for that, we’re thankful.
