Union Power held its 80th Annual Meeting at Lee Park Baptist Church in Monroe on October 12 with nearly 1,000 attendees.
The day began bright and early with member registration. Members were greeted by the familiar faces of Union Power employees before enjoying a complimentary breakfast buffet catered by Spiro’s Hilltop Restaurant.
Prior to the business meeting, attendees of all ages participated in health screening services provided by Community Health Services of Union County, a bucket truck demonstration, a photo booth with lots of fun props, HVAC and energy efficiency education, face painting, a safety demonstration, and other entertainment activities.
New this year, Ty Baudoin with Monroe Massage & Yoga provided relaxing back massage services, and Brenda Moody with Panache Salon provided soothing hand treatments to members who attended the Health Fair. Members also got a chance to see and learn about our new electric vehicle and the benefits of driving electric.
Live music was provided by local bluegrass recording group, A Deeper Shade of Blue, followed by a historical video commemorating the co-op’s 80th Anniversary.
During the business meeting, the Piedmont High School Air Force JROTC presented the colors, and Executive Vice President and General Manager Greg Andress shared important announcements and introductions. Union Power’s 2019-20 Kenan Fellow, Pam Johnson of Parkwood Middle School, also joined the stage to share about her fellowship experience this past summer.
Director elections were held, and members re-elected Lee Roy Kirk, Jr., Sue Threatt, and David Hyatt to serve additional three-year terms. Following the meeting, a door prize drawing was held with $2,500 in cash and prizes awarded.
