Tri-County Electric's annual meeting saw dozens of members and their families come together on May 2 at Metcalfe County Middle School in Edmonton, Kentucky.

Ray Goad, of Lafayette, was elected to serve as secretary-treasurer on the company's board of directors following the meeting. Also elected were Mike Miller of Scottsville (president) and Mark Linkous of Edmonton (vice president).

Paul Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, told attendees that Tri-County is in a strong financial position and is reinvesting its revenue through system upgrades, maintenance and expansions.

He also introduced the meeting's other speakers: David Callis, executive vice president and general manager of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association, and Chris Perry, president of the Kentucky Electric Cooperatives.

Many members visited the information booths also set-up by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Kentucky Electric Cooperatives. Caricaturist Denny Whalen and T-shirt air-brushers Robert and Beth Hollingsworth stayed busy entertaining the children.

Due to the weather, the safety trailer demonstration and bucket truck rides were cancelled.

Numerous door prizes were awarded during the evening's activities, including the grand prize Ford Explorer won by member-owners Donald and Jennifer Tweedy of Burkesville, Kentucky.

Tri-County Electric's logo was displayed on the chairs given to members at registration, and each child was given a free Tri-County Electric T-shirt.
