Pioneer holding annual meeting

Pioneer Electric Cooperative (PEC) will hold the 2015 annual member meeting Saturday at the Butler County Fairgrounds.

Gates are scheduled to open at 8:30 a.m. and the official meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. All PEC members are invited to attend and each member may bring up to five guests.

Every October, PEC holds the annual meeting to allow member-owners to participate directly in the cooperative’s Democratic process of electing members to the Pioneer Electric Board of Trustees. This year, Districts 1, 4 and 7 will hold elections for trustees. The meeting also creates an opportunity for members to get to know more about PEC and to learn about new and existing programs available to members.

Southern Legends Opry Band will provide live entertainment; the Touchstone Energy hot air balloon will be available for rides and members will have the opportunity to win door prizes and more. Members in attendance will be eligible to win one of ten $75 bill credits, as well as a grand prize of a “year of free power,” based on the average yearly residential usage and valued over $2,000.
