We had one of the largest turnouts ever at our Ninety Seventh Annual Meeting and we also had the largest return of ballots we’ve ever had.  Congratulations to Leo Dreith and John Irwin who were both re-elected to our Board of Directors!  The Board and staff reviewed the past year’s highlights and financials for the members (See Annual Handout) , and presentations from Bonneville Power Administration and Evergreen Consulting were given.  Thank you to all of our members and past/present employees who joined us for the meeting, and also helped us celebrate the achievements of  employee Caleb Smith –  who has just completed his lineman apprenticeship!  Congratulations Caleb!

Thanks to all of our fantastic customers, employees, and Board of Directors who contributed to our backto school drive program.  We were able to get a variety of school supplies – notebooks, markers, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, rulers, binders, and more – all needed to help local foster kids start the school year.  Besides school supplies we received some wonderful clothes donations and generous cash donations to fill in where the Wishing Well Foundation needed it the most. A big THANKS once again!
