Gibson Electric Membership Corp. had a huge turnout of customer-owners and friends at its 74th annual meeting at Crockett County High School in Alamo.
Crabb Revival, the featured entertainment and a talented band, was a huge hit with a mix of traditional Crabb Family and contemporary Christian songs.
Local musician Scott Myatt entertained the crowd with the “mellow” music of artists who had their heyday in the 1970s. The children received balloon animals from a clown and visited with Louie the Lightning Bug, while the adults took advantage of the health fair, picked up information from energy exhibits, participated in the business meeting. Everyone enjoyed free barbecue and hot dog lunches.
Gibson EMC board chairman Mack Goode opened the business meeting by thanking customer-owners for their attendance and participation.
In his report, Gibson EMC President and CEO Dan Rodamaker talked about the progress made in the 2010 fiscal year and the challenges ahead.
“Our nation’s biggest energy challenge will be a steadily increasing energy demand, coupled with a diminishing supply of capacity,” Rodamaker said.
He called on the crowd to help replace the “use all you want” mindset we’ve shared for years with a new and environmentally responsible culture of energy efficiency.
Rodamaker encouraged members to visit Gibson EMC’s new website — www.gibsonemc.com — where they can access account information and pay bills online.
Following the business meeting, the Gibson EMC board of trustees held an organizational meeting and elected officers. Mack Goode was re-elected chairman, Steve Sanders was elected vice chairman, Don Leathers was re-elected secretary-treasurer and Keith Heglar was re-elected assistant secretary-treasurer.
