In 2019 FreeState members generously gave $113,412 in spare change to area organizations bringing the total since the launch of the Operation Round-Up® program in 2017 to $194,892. The FreeState Community Foundation facilitates the program with the help of a volunteer member committee of five that reviews and awards grant funds quarterly.
FreeState Electric Cooperative hosted their 3rd Annual Energy Fair and Member Appreciation Day on Oct. 23. The event included a soap drive to assist area food pantries with gathering personal care items.
Ring Central will be the new phone provider for FreeState Electric Cooperative, effective at 10 a.m. Friday, November 1, 2019.
The switch of providers should not impact members. However, there could be a short window of time where service may be interrupted. If a member calls and is unable to get through, please wait a few minutes and try again.
Most people have at least one memory associated with a tree. Maybe a tire swing hanging from an old tree at your grandparent’s house, or a favorite shaded resting spot on hot summer days. Maybe you carved your initials in the trunk of a tree as a child, then sought that tree out as an adult for those memories. The emotions trees prompt are just one reason we value trees.
We want to hear your story and share it with the new generation of cooperative members.
As we talk about a new energy and the future of cooperatives we also want to connect with our past to feature stories describing the time when the co-op brought power to the farm, ranch or rural residence.
