It’s time for WFEC’s Annual Meeting/Member Appreciation Day! The board of trustees and employees invite all members to join us at the Graceville Civic Center (5224 Brown Street) on Saturday, April 28 from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
Many activities have been planned for members throughout the day including a health fair with screenings for blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. For the most accurate results, participants should fast for at least eight hours prior to taking these tests. Representatives from Eye Center South will conduct vision exams and Covenant Hospice will also be on hand to share information about home health, and end of life care. Some of the other activities include electrical safety demonstrations and more. Children’s activities will also take place throughout the day.
Entertainment for the day will be The Cedar Creek Band who have played all over the southeastern United States with some of the biggest names around including, Ricky Scaggs, Ralph Stanley, Grandpa Jones, Mac Wiseman, Rhonda Vincent, John Hartford and many other Grand Old Opry stars. The band has opened for Joe Diffie, Marty Rayborn & Shenandoah as well as many others over the years. They play modern bluegrass by taking older country music and doing it with a bluegrass flavor. The group also plays bluegrass gospel and plays many churches for homecomings, festivals and more. Band members are Danny Hood (mandolin and vocals), Mike Grainger (banjo and vocals), Marshall Steverson (bass and vocals), Wayne Martin (fiddle), Buddy Smith (guitar and vocals) and James Hood (guitar and lead vocals).
Don’t miss the co-op’s annual meeting with special guest speaker, Mike L. Bjorklund, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Florida Electric Cooperatives Association and an update on the cooperative from WFEC Executive VP & CEO, Russell Dunaway. There will also be door prizes, registration gifts and food to round out the day. We hope to see you there!
