03/30/11 Marshall County Rural Electric Membership Corporation will hold its 73rd Annual Meeting on Tuesday, April 5th in the Plymouth High School Auditorium. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for registration and at 7:00 p.m. the meeting will begin. All REMC members are urged to attend. The Cooperative’s Annual Membership Meeting is the most important member event of the year that includes fun for the whole family. Members are the reason for the Cooperative’s existence and the Annual Meeting has been a major event every year since 1939.
The REMC is governed by a Board of Directors who are elected by the members at the annual meeting. The Directors are challenged with the responsibility of representing the membership in major decisions that face the cooperative on a yearly basis. The annual meeting also is an opportunity for members to review the business results and operations of the cooperative for the preceding year.
Members will receive ballots for the election of three members to the Board of Directors. This year’s candidates for director are Pat Burkett, Maryln Hochstetler, Marvin Houin, Wayne Houin, Dr. Richard Leeper and Steve Roberts.
Musical entertainment is always a highlight at the annual meeting. This year’s entertainment is the Wright Brothers Band. Their show’s as unpredictable as Indiana weather. The Wright Brothers’ thirty eight years of making music together is testimony to their ability to bring a smile to every member of their audience. And often it’s as much a smile of surprise as of pleasure; the boys move seamlessly from a 1940’s pop standard to a reworking of a Beatles classic. What is most interesting is that this incredibly versatile group can change gears like no other group as they play a 40’s big band song then switch to a 50’s – 90’s rock ‘n roll , then turn around and perform a George Jones country classic or a bluegrass number. The glue that holds it all together is that unmistakable Wright Brothers sound; those heavenly harmonies that make you hold your breath, and the instruments that sizzle or soothe. Don’t miss the Wright Brothers Band…
A $5.00 cash attendance award is given to each member that attends (one per ballot). Also, members attending are registered for numerous door prize drawings including (10) $75 REMC electric bill credits and a chance to win the Grand Prize Drawing, a $750 REMC electric bill credit. While special musical entertainment is provided for the adults, there is FREE Babysitting provided by the 4-H Junior Leaders and children’s entertainment during the meeting.
