Our April issue of Currents, our monthly member newsletter, has been sent out by mail and is now available online!
In this issue, we celebrate the second Monday in April, Lineman Appreciation Day! CEO Chris Reese opens the issue with a piece dedicated to thanking our linemen for their tireless work maintaining our power lines and restoring electricity during harsh storms. The theme continues with a printed version of a speech by Nick Thomas, the son of one of our lineman and the Youth Leadership Council member representing Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative at the Pennsylvania Rural Electric Association Summer Meeting. This speech reflects on how electric co-ops have impacted Nick's life and how their linemen have worked as inspirational figures.
Also included in this issue is information about our upcoming June 3rd Annual Meeting! We highly encourage all of our members to attend to see the results of our by-mail election for our board of directors, hear about the state of the Co-op, and learn about how their money is reinvested into ensuring better service and reliability for the whole community.
