National Co-op Month Includes Visit to St. Croix Electric Cooperative

On October 22nd, St. Croix Electric Cooperative hosted St. Croix EDC as part of National Co-Op Month in the U.S.

EDC board president Angela Popenhagen presented SCEC with a proclamation to recognize the important contributions made by the rural electric cooperative. President/CEO Brian Zelenak accepted the proclamation on behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and co-op members.

According to the proclamation, every October since 1964 has been designated as National Co-op Month; cooperatives exist because of its members; rural electric cooperatives serve an estimated 42+ million people across 2,500+ counties in the U.S.; and St. Croix Electric, founded in 1937, has grown to distribute electricity to more than 11,500+ members and maintains over 1,800 miles of line throughout St. Croix and the bordering counties of Pierce, Polk, and Dunn in west central Wisconsin
