October is National Cooperative Month! The theme for 2019 is “By the Community, For the Community.”
This is a celebration of electric cooperatives across the nation to recognize what we do and who we serve – that’s you! Highlights include Wednesday drawings, volunteering at Douglas-Hart Nature Center and hosting the Red Cross Bloodmobile. We will participate in the Mattoon Expo, Paint the Town 5K, Mattoon downtown Trunk or Treat and the Eastern Illinois University parade. Additionally, we will be selling pink sport buffs, also called headbands or neck gaiters, for $5 and donating the proceeds to the Mobile Mammography services at Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, and these are great to use all year long for sporting events or outdoor activities. Visit us at these locations during October or stop by our office! Be sure to follow us on Facebook for more details & giveaways.
