Federated had an error with its mailing list and about half of the co-op members received the newsletter with others having the wrong name on the label. Federated apologizes for the error and implemented a process to prevent this from occurring again. If you would like to view the October issue, you can download it using this link.
The #WhoPowersYou contest is an online contest where we invite cooperative members (and employees) to submit photos and stories about fellow members who are making a positive impact in their co-op community, making their nominee eligible to win a cash prize.
Like last year, users can enter the contest by visiting www.WhoPowersYou.com
• Contest begins October 2.
• Contest ends November 4.
• Winners announced in December.
Only Touchstone Energy Cooperative members and employees are eligible to participate. Co-op employees are not eligible to be a contest nominee. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges. The prize winners will receive $500 up to $5,000 grand prize.
Locally, last year Gwen Fleace, Round Lake, nominated Cheryl Holthe, Jackson, who became one of the 10 finalists. 62 people were nominated last year.
To enter cooperative members will be asked to share a photo of their nominee and a brief description of how their nominee makes a difference in their community.
