Happy National Co-op Month!
Article was added on Saturday, October 01, 2016
October is a great month for a lot of reasons. It's the
heart of college football season. The leaves are
changing. The temperature is changing. The Major League
World Series is kicking off. And let's not forget hay rides,
haunted houses and Halloween candy! (There's some
alliteration for all of those dedicated English teachers out
there!) What's your favorite reason?
On a more serious note, October is special because it's Breast
Cancer Awareness Month. This is a perfect opportunity to show
support for the wonderful, strong women in our lives who are
fighting bravely. Real men wear pink!
For us here at Santee Electric Cooperative, October is also
special because it's National Co-op Month. This is a time for
us to take a moment to recognize what makes us special - being
member-owned, so we are going to celebrate with member appreciation
events. The many thousands of men and women across Clarendon,
Florence, Georgetown and Williamsburg Counties who make up our
membership are the strength of this great cooperative.
We are very excited about the Member Appreciation Days scheduled
at our five locations throughout this month. I am personally
excited about this, because - if the Good Lord's willing - I'll be
able to attend all five of them. The employees and I are all
very eager for a chance to spend some time with you, enjoy lunch
with you and answer any questions you might have about the
cooperative for which we all care so much. I have been
extremely pleased with the display of excitement and support that
our board has shown for these events as well. Hopefully, you
can find time to join us at one of the locations where the events
The board, the employees and I all hope that all of you know how
much we truly appreciate all of you. Whatever your favorite
part is, I hope you have a wonderful October. And I hope you
can join us at one of these events. Please join me in praying
for good weather and safe travels for all of our members, and thank
you for your membership.
