OPALCO Annual Meeting: Saturday, April 13th FREE Lunch, Prizes and Co-op Q&A

If you pay your power bill to OPALCO, you’re a member of the Co-op and this fun-filled annual meeting is all about YOU! OPALCO holds its annual meeting on the inter-island ferry so it’s easy for everyone to come aboard. Lunch will be served at your ferry landing, and prizes handed out during the short cruise around the inter-island route. The main event is a member Q&A session, following a brief “state of the co-op” address. Election results will be announced.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Safety” and we’ll be celebrating National Lineworker Appreciation Day with cupcakes and a chance to meet some of our lineworkers. OPALCO’s partners will be on board with information and give-aways including: San Juan Islands Conservation District, BPA, Rock Island Communications and T-Mobile. How do you get in on the action? Show up at your ferry landing on Saturday morning and register for the meeting. No reservations required. The travel schedule is:
