Musical performances, speakers and informative programs will be a big part of the Nolin Rural Electric Cooperative Corp. 2011 co-op annual meeting at 5 p.m. today at John Hardin High School.   

For musical entertainment, Kentucky native and rising Nashville star Clay Underwood will perform. At 6 p.m., artist and singer Rick Arnold takes the stage.

For children, there are free balloon fun houses and slides behind the school. Caricaturist Denny Whalen will be back.

“Whalen has a special artistic talent and is sure to ‘draw’ a crowd as he provides the participants with free portraits,” said Patsy Whitehead, Nolin RECC spokeswoman.

The event also showcases a collection of booths and a health fair.

Although the meeting offers free entertainment for the entire community, Whitehead said the main reason for holding the event is to conduct the cooperative business session, which begins at 7 p.m. in the main gym.

“Members who bring their pre-registration cards, which were mailed the first of June, will zip right through registration,” Whitehead said. “Once registered, Nolin members will receive a special gift and are eligible for door prizes.” 

Whitehead said the grand prize winner will have a choice of an Apple iPad or laptop computer.

The public is invited to attend. Beef or pork sandwiches, drinks and ice cream can be purchased.
