Community events give back to members
Every October is National Co-op Month, an opportunity to celebrate who we are and, more importantly, the members we serve. One of the cooperative principles that sets TCEC apart from other utilities is 'Concern for Community.' To reach more communities, TCEC is celebrating Co-op Month in July and August too.
TCEC has partnered with PTCI in the Oklahoma Panhandle and EpicTouch in Elkhart, Kansas, to host a series of events to give back. While some events have already occurred, all members can attend the upcoming events. The following events are part of the series:
- July 6 – Texhoma – Free Swim at the Texhoma Swimming Pool from 5 – 7 p.m.
- July 12 – Hooker – Free Swim at the Hooker Swimming Pool from 5 – 7 p.m.
- July 20 – Beaver – Free Swim at the Beaver Swimming Pool from 5 – 7 p.m.
- July 27 – Boise City – Free Swim at the Boise City Swimming Pool from 5 – 7 p.m.
- August 3 – Elkhart – Appreciation Cookout at the Morton County Fairgrounds from 6 to 7 p.m.
- October 4 – Guymon – Pumpkins at the Park at Sunset Lake at Thompson Park from 5 – 6:30 p.m.
Other events highlighting the cooperative difference are TCEC's district meetings, virtual town hall, and the annual meeting.

- Tuesday, July 27 – District 4 Meeting, Hooker High School Auditorium, Hooker, at 6 p.m.

As a co-op, TCEC is well-suited to meet the community's needs because it is locally governed. TCEC's leadership team and employees live right here in the community. The board of trustees, who helps set long-term priorities for the co-op, live locally on co-op lines. These board members have been elected to the position by neighbors like you.
TCEC wants you to think of your cooperative as more than your energy provider, but instead as a local business that supports this community and powers economic development and prosperity for the people. Your electric co-op was built by the community for the community.
