The 1,700-plus members and their guests — a total of almost 4,000 people — who attended this year’s Annual Meeting Aug. 5 enjoyed an evening of great entertainment, family fun and lots of prizes. Members from all nine board districts made their way to the Lloyd Noble Center for the Annual Meeting and Member Appreciation Night. Kicked off by fan-favorite Jim Garling and followed by the award-winning husband and wife gospel group The Imaginaries, members enjoyed all of the entertainment.
The Kids’ Zone featured Sponji the clown and his wife, Bobbin, making balloon animals for kids of all ages, and the Washington High School cheer squad provided face-painting forvthe kids. The photo booth is always a hit as well.
One boy and one girl walked away with bicycle vouchers and one teen won a Samsung tablet. As always, the Kids’ Zone will be back next year to provide a place of entertainment for kids and young families.
OEC gave away over 40 gifts this year thanks to our generous vendors and business partners — that’s in addition to the $20 credit every member received for registering at the Annual Meeting. One lucky member won the $1,000 grand prize and three members pursuing post-secondary education received a $1,000 Luck-of-the-Draw scholarship.
If you attended the Annual Meeting this year, thank you for coming out. We hope you had an enjoyable evening. If you could not attend, we hope to see you next year.
Our member service, subscriber support and engineering services departments are often the unsung heroes of OEC and OEC Fiber. The service departments work tirelessly to ensure you get the best experience with us. We sat down with a few team members to learn more about them.
