Kankakee Valley REMC is celebrating a huge milestone this year-serving our communities for 80 years. The best way to celebrate is with family! That is why we hope you and your family will join us on Tuesday, June 18, at the Porter County Expo Center for what can only be described as much more than an annual meeting.
This year's "open house" event allows you to come and go as you please. The doors will open at 4:30 p.m., with dinner served until 6:30 p.m. Here is a snapshot of what we plan to bring you at your annual meeting.
Revel in a '60s music experience as you enjoy tunes by 45 RPM from 5-7:30 p.m. In between sets, we'll be showcasing a 2018 year-in-review video taking the place of the more traditional remarks we've made in previous years.
Be sure to also try your luck at bingo from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
For the kids
Treat your kids to one of two Granpa Cratchet shows. Granpa's stage show and miniature truck travel all over the United States bringing back the nostalgia of the good ol'days and plenty of wild stories. The popular sparkle tattoos and balloon art will be available as well.
We will feature an assortment of outdoor activities, including a high-voltage safety demonstration. We're also excited to have our new electric vehicle, a Chevy Bolt on display.
At 7:30 p.m. we will hold a brief business meeting to announce the board of directors election results. At that time, we'll also give away cash prizes and award a $4,000 grand prize vacation. You do not need to be present to win, but you must register at the meeting to be eligible. The registration table closes at 7:00 p.m.
Remember, your board election voting packet will be mailed to you this month. Whether you choose to vote via mail or online prior to the meeting, or at the annual meeting, you will receive a $5 bill credit. Member-consumers attending the meeting will receive a special registration gift, too.
