On Thursday, June 7, Blue Grass Energy welcomed a crowd of over 600 members and their families to the cooperative’s 81st annual meeting, held at the Keeneland Entertainment Barn in Lexington, Kentucky.
The crowd of nearly 1,500 was treated to a meeting geared towards families—with several children’s activities, which varied from bounce houses to video games.
Entertainment included Bingo for everyone—with members winning over $1,000 in prizes. A meal of BBQ and hot dogs with all the trimmings was provided to all in attendance prior to the business meeting.
Summer is here and for many members that mean staying cool at the pool: playing water games, swimming laps, or floating along at a relaxing pace. While time at the pool can be refreshing, we want to remind members of the potential electrical hazards in swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas.
Blue Grass Energy invites its members to the 2018 Annual Meeting on Thursday, June 7 at the Keeneland Entertainment Center.
Registration is 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the business meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. The entrance to the Keeneland Entertainment Center is directly across from Man O’ War Boulevard and Blue Grass Airport, at 4201 Versailles Road in Lexington.
At the business meeting, co-op officials will review the 2017 business operations, and members will also hear about issues affecting the electric co-op industry today.
The Arbor Day Foundation encourages thoughtful practices that help preserve community trees while also benefiting electric co-op consumers.
Trees can help cool your home and neighborhood, break cold winds to lower your heating costs, and provide food for wildlife. Properly placed trees can lower line clearance costs for utility companies, reduce tree mortality, and result in healthier community forests.
As of 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, Blue Grass Energy completed restoration of service to all members who lost power due to an early-week snowstorm. The 10” snowfall from this storm was very wet and heavy which caused broken limbs, power lines, and poles, causing over 8,331 members to be without power. The southern part of the service area was most affected including Anderson, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, and Woodford Counties.
