Annual Meeting set for October 5
Soon Rural Electric Cooperative members will gather for the 80th Annual Membership Meeting.
Annual Meeting will be held in REC’s Multi Purpose Center in Lindsay on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until the beginning of the business meeting at 10 a.m.
The business session will update members on the Co-op’s activities from 2018, Board President, Gary Jones, will give a report and CEO, Dale Nye, will present financial and operational information.
In addition to the meeting, REC is offering a free health fair provided by the Lindsay Municipal Hospital, the Lindsay Emergency Medical Service, South Central Medical Center and Physical Therapy Central. They will begin performing these services from 8 a.m. until the beginning of the business session at 10 a.m. inside the tents in front of the Multi Purpose Center. For the convenience of our members, there are two consent forms for the health fair inside the envelope with the official notice of the meeting. Members can fill out the consent forms and bring the forms with them to annual meeting. Members planning to have the blood test done should refrain from eating after midnight prior to the health fair.
The Lindsay Kiwanis Club will once again be serving their annual pancakes, bacon and coffee fundraiser breakfast to REC members. They will be set up outside the Multi Purpose Center by the tents.
Crossfire has been playing together for over 25 years and they play a wide variety of country music and include a few old classic rock songs.

Band members Langford, Byrne and Stewart are from Alex. While Mink is from Cement and Peery is formerly from Lindsay but now lives in Blanchard. All five members are involved with vocals and providing the harmony for which they are known.
