November Message from the Manager
Loyalty is a prized virtue – to country, family, even the schools we attend. We keep those ties strong throughout our lives.
We at Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative also have loyalties, to the members and communities we serve. We have deep connections here because this is our home, and you are our neighbor.
We exist to provide you with safe, reliable and affordable electric service – and doing so in a way that makes things better for future generations. That means we care about improving the quality of life in the areas we serve. That’s why we offer scholarships to college bound students, send a high school student to Washington, D.C., every summer to learn about history and government, provide low-interest loans to businesses and participate in community service projects.
We don’t participate in these activities simply because it’s nice to do, or even the right thing to do. We do it because we remain loyal to our members, our neighbors, our home – and a mission to make life better in the areas we serve.
Until next time,
On Oct. 11, Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative employees participated in the co-op’s third annual Community Service Day in Crosby. The group assembled playground equipment at the new Crosby Kids Daycare facility. Past Community Service Day projects were held at the Short Creek Dam recreation area and the Bowbells School playground.
