HomeWorks Tri-County Electric has wrapped up its seven district member meetings, with a total of over 1,300 people attending, and the return of $2.4 million in capital credit refunds to its members this year.

Directors Luke Pohl (District 3) and Ed Oplinger (District 6) were re-elected, and both ran unopposed. Pohl is the owner of Pohl’s Travel Plaza, north of Grand Ledge, and coaches boys’ varsity basketball at Pewamo-Westphalia Schools. Oplinger is a full-time farmer of beef cattle, hogs and cash crops in the Weidman area.

Collections for local food banks were conducted at each meeting, with a total of nearly 1 ton of non-perishable food donated.

During the meetings, members were also asked to join advisory committees to help improve various services and member communications, and recipes were collected for a member cookbook to be published this summer. Proceeds will go to the co-op’s People Fund.
