Dana Dye served as temporary chairman and presided over the meeting held at Hickman County High School. HCHS Junior ROTC presented colors for the Pledge of Allegiance, and Centerville Church of Christ Minister Todd Parsley lead the invocation. The event served as an opportunity for members to see MLEC’s 2022 Annual Report video, which highlighted service commitments, progress over the past year, reliability upgrade plans, community involvement, and a Meriwether Lewis Connect update.
The event also served as an opportunity to celebrate MLEC poster contest winners and recognize Hickman County MLEC Director Wayne Qualls for completing the National Rural Electric Cooperative Director Gold Program.
Door prize winners were Sandra Cochran - Orca cooler; McKale Baltz – Samsonite suitcase; Kenny Parman – one-year membership to the Nashville Zoo; Jean Smith - Ninja cooker; Charles Shelton – outdoor smokeless firepit; and James Aydelott - 50 inch smart TV donated by MLConnect. All meeting attendees received an MLEC cutting board.
“Due to Covid, this is the first time we’ve had in-person membership meetings in all five MLEC counties since 2019. It feels good to be back with you,” said MLEC President and CEO Keith Carnahan. “All of us at Meriwether Lewis consider it an honor to serve you with power and broadband. Every day we strive to deliver the essential services that make your life more comfortable.”
