SAVE THE DATE! - April 27, 2024


LREC is happy to announce the milestone of our 75th Annual Meeting of the membership, scheduled for April 27th. Save the date and mark your calendar for your Co-op Annual Meeting! The meeting will be on the last Saturday of April, at Hulbert Public Schools (316 Rider Ln, Hulbert, OK 74441). This year marks our 75th year anniversary. Members who attend will receive an anniversary coffee mug as a co-op gift, marking 75 years of service!

Each member account registered will also receive a $30 electric credit and have their name entered into a raffle for cash prizes totaling $3,500 after the Annual Meeting. The membership will vote on two open board seats in an in-person drive-through format. Please bring your bill for quick registration.

We will also have a business meeting at the Hulbert School Auditorium at 1:00 p.m. for our CEO to update the members on co-op financials. NO PRIZES will be presented at this business meeting. This will only consist of the co-op financials.

LREC’s success depends on guidance from its Board of Trustees, consisting of seven democratically elected individuals from the membership. The board governs the cooperative by setting strategic goals, rates, and cooperative policies.

If you or a passenger in your vehicle have medical conditions or have difficulty spending an extended amount of time in a vehicle, please take precautions accordingly. We have planned for the traffic to flow as quickly as possible. 

As we embark on this milestone year, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to every member and the cooperative which has been shaping success and driving LREC forward. Together, let’s celebrate 75 years of providing our members safe, reliable, and competitive services for today and tomorrow.
