None of us make it through life alone. Take time to pause and reflect on those who have helped you along the way.” Welcome to Week 166 of #TheFridayFeature. 🇺🇸 On this Memorial Day Weekend, pause and reflect on those who died protecting our freedom. I am grateful. I feel for the families whose loved ones didn’t return home.

The weather was perfect. Smiles were plentiful. And a record number of SEMO Electric Cooperative member-owners participated in the Cooperative's 2023 Annual Meeting May 18, 2023, at the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo Grounds. Member-owners approved minutes from the 2022 annual meeting, approved the 2022 financial report and elected four directors - James Deneke, Dennis Fowler, Dicky Hanor, and Myron Hawes - for three year terms on the board. The 2023 version was the 85th meeting of members.

😅 Instead of another take this morning, we decided to use this video - you will see my mistake! Grateful for my cheerleader for 35 years! Be sure to let those special people in your life know how #grateful you are for them. Don’t take them for granted! For those following along, back surgery was 15 days ago. I can’t bend or twist, but I can drive now! Have a great week. Welcome to Week 165! #keeppushingforward

Storms rocked the cooperative's service area late Monday evening creating thousands of power outages. Crews have worked through the night and will continue restoring power throughout the day. SEMO Electric hired contractors Pike Electric and Townsend Tree Service to replace several broken poles and remove many downed trees. Thank you for your patience as we clean up Mother Nature's mess. Please stay away from downed power lines. For updates, please follow our Facebook page.

Hello. Welcome to Week 163 of The Friday Feature. It’s May 5, 2023. We may only see the bright side of people’s lives and assume their life is grand. We may not see the other side as individuals suffer with chronic pain, the loss of a loved one, financial issues, employment frustrations, and so on. Many people are dealing with something. However, they keep pushing forward. Some push forward by helping others, which is rewarding and makes us feel better.
