Annual Meeting 2022 is now in the books. As in the previous two years, Broad River Electric Cooperative had a drive-thru annual meeting, held in the truck shed. There were three days of drive-thru registration and voting. Early registration and voting for members took place April 26–27. The business meeting, held on April 28, was live streamed on the Broad River Electric Facebook and YouTube pages.
Congratulations go to Sandra Millwood, the grand prize winner of the 2014 Ford F-150. Our zero-turn mower winner was William Tinsley. Gas card winners included Robert Blanton and Deborah McClary. See photos of all our winners on Page 3.
Back this year, after two years absence, Broad River Electric was pleased to award $1,000 scholarships for the children or grandchildren of registered members. This year’s winners are Blake Morgan, who attends Gaffney High School and Victoria McAbee, who attends Boiling Springs High School. Both plan to attend Clemson University.
This year’s meeting was quite a celebration but bittersweet, nevertheless. After 47 years at 811 Hamrick Street, BREC is closing this location and moving to its new operations center at 1036 Webber Road in Cowpens for Annual Meeting 2023.
We look forward to seeing all our members again at next year’s Annual Meeting.
