SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 – Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) is back again this year with a new and improved member appreciation event. Just as they do every October, the co-op is celebrating National Cooperative Month with something special just for members. This year, DMEA is inviting members to Member Appreciation Night at the Rec on Friday, October 13, from 4:00 PM to close at either the Montrose Community Recreation Center or Bill Heddles Recreation Center.
“Every October we like to mark National Cooperative Month by doing something special just for our members. This year, we really wanted to focus on families because, at DMEA, we pride ourself on being one big co-op family. So, from our family to yours, thanks for being a member,” said Becky Mashburn, DMEA Marketing Supervisor.
DMEA members received a coupon in their September member newsletter which can be cut out and redeemed for free admission at the rec center of their choice on Friday, October 13 starting at 4:00 pm. Coupons can also be picked up at either DMEA office during normal business hours.
In addition to full access to each rec center, Members will also be treated to a free dinner of hot dogs, chips, cookies, and a drink while supplies last. DMEA has partnered with two local non-profits to help provide the meals.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of being a co-op is our focus on giving back to the community. It’s just the way co-ops do business. By partnering with the Black Canyon Boys and Girls Club and the Delta Lions Club, we’re able to add a little something extra to our event and support these organizations that help our communities. We’ll be donating to each organization and we welcome donations from the members as well,” said Mashburn.
