join the fun and see what the group is all about at their July
24th meeting. The meeting will start at 6 p.m. at the
Santee Electric Co-op office at 424 Sumter Highway in Kingstree.
WIRE is a statewide community service organization established in
1981 where women work together to help other in our
WIRE's motto is People Helping People but these women also
believe laughter and knowing they're helping others is as good for
them as it is for those the program helps, president, Lacee Sutton
Women eligible for membership include: consumer members,
employees, employees' wives, retirees formerly associated with
electric cooperatives, directors, and directors' wives.
The group also promotes understanding of interest in the rural
electrification movement; supports the member owned electric
cooperatives as they improve the quality of life in rural South
Carolina and the nation; opens communication between local electric
cooperatives, statewide and national associations; assists local,
state, and national rural electric organizations in carrying out
their legislative and public relations programs; and establishes
relationships with other women's organizations helping to gain
support and understanding for rural electrification programs.
WIRE chapters are established by local electric cooperatives to
work within their own service area. These chapters operate within
the network of the South Carolina WIRE and the Cooperative Service
Network. Each cooperative designates a key woman to work with
state and national organizations and local managers.
