Wheatland REA’s annual meeting held on Feb. 26 in Wheatland, Wyo. marks the first of a long series of events held throughout the member service territory.

Wednesday (Feb. 26), marked the start of the 2014 series of Tri-State member annual meetings, beginning with Wheatland Rural Electric Association’s annual membership gathering held at the 4-H building in Wheatland, Wyo.  This event marked the first of 37 meetings that Tri-State’s member services group, along with senior management staff members, will attend in 2014.

Along with the annual meeting, the co-op’s agenda featured a health fair with blood testing, as well as informational packets to raise awareness and promote a healthy lifestyle for its members.

Tri-State’s member services booth showcased residential LED light bulbs and the rebates and incentives that Wheatland REA members can receive from the co-op and Tri-State for replacing inefficient and outdated incandescent bulbs with LED lights. Residential member rebates offer either a 50 percent or $10 rebate (whichever is less) on any LED bulb purchase for up to 50 bulbs per year.
