The 80th Annual Meeting of the members of Osage Valley Electric Cooperative Association will be held at the Benson Center in Clinton, Missouri on Thursday, August 30, 2018. At the annual meeting, members exercise their rights as member/owners of their electric cooperative. The members learn how their cooperative is doing financially, elect three directors to serve a three-year term, and enjoy an evening of entertainment. Each registered member who attends will receive a commemorative gift and $5.00 credit on their electric bill. Additional $50 and $100 electric credit certificates and other prizes will be given away throughout the evening. Two lucky winners will win $250 worth of free electricity and one grand prize winner will receive $500 worth of free electricity. Members must be present to win. Sandwiches will be served between 5:00-7:00 p.m. Registration will begin at 5:00 p.m. and the business meeting will convene at 7:00 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided by Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road. The offices at Butler and Clinton will only be open form 9:00-11:00 a.m. on August 30th to prepare for the meeting. We’d like to remind members to bring their registration slip that will be in the August issue of the Rural Missouri.
