Painting for a Cause

A few Saturdays ago I had the pleasure to help paint a home at the annual Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives Community Service Project, held in conjunction with the NRECA annual meeting in New Orleans. As one of 100 volunteers from 40 cooperatives across America, we teamed up with the Rebuilding Together New Orleans organization to repair five houses belonging to elderly or disabled homeowners who can’t perform the upkeep on their own.

Clean, Affordable or Reliable?

SEMO Electric Cooperative member-owners had the chance to vote their priorities at Associated Electric Cooperative’s CARE exhibit during SEMO Electric’s 76th Annual Meeting. Members who stopped by the exhibit received a voting chip to drop into a clear box that corresponds to the aspect of their electricity – clean, affordable or reliable – that most important to them.

Safety at Work

On April 11, my heart skipped a beat when I heard the news that a Missouri lineman was electrocuted while restoring power after severe weather in St. Louis. It was a sad reminder of the hazardous conditions that SEMO Electric Cooperative’s employees (Team SEMO) may deal with 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You never know when the phone will ring to respond to an outage. You never know when your loved one might not come home. Team SEMO continues to keep the fallen lineman’s family and friends in its prayers.
