MLEC Hosts Member Night


(October 24, 2023) —About 140 people attended Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative’s 2023 Lewis County Member Night held October 19.

Dr. Jeff Peery, senior MLEC director for Lewis County, called the informational meeting to order at Lewis County High School. Lewis County student Maylee Hadley led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Central Christian Fellowship Pastor Chris Bean led the invocation. The event served as an opportunity for members to see MLEC’s 2023 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 local Lewis County students. MLEC poster contest winners received their prizes, and MLEC recognized Washington Youth Tour delegate Hadley Spitzer.

Door prize winners were Kay Henley – one-year membership to the Nashville Zoo; Robbie Hooks – bluetooth speaker; Reba Hollis – iRobot roomba vacuum/sweeper; Rhonda Haygood – Blackstone electric grill; Dana McConkey– outdoor smokeless firepit; and Violet Tenison – 50-inch smart TV donated by MLConnect. All meeting attendees received an MLEC weather station.
