Business session, entertainment scheduled Friday night

Nolin RECC invites its members and the community to attend the 2013 annual meeting to enjoy the classic country music and humor of Mike Snider and to visit booths and exhibits designed for the family fun.

Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. Friday at John Hardin High School with the business meeting beginning at 7 p.m.

“It’s a very special year for Nolin – we are celebrating our 75th anniversary,” said Patsy Whitehead, Nolin RECC communications manager. “There will be special recognitions and prizes for all ages during the evening.”

The entertainment portion of Nolin’s program features Snider, who has performed hundreds of spots on TNN’s “Nashville Now” and spent seven years in the cornfields of “Hee Haw,” the syndicated TV show. In 1990, he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, one of the highest honors a country performer can receive.

Early in the evening, David Garrard will perform a magic act and caricature artist Denny Whalen will be drawing cartoon-like renditions of people in the crowd, Whitehead said.

“The main reason for the annual meeting is to hold the cooperative business session,” Whitehead said. “Nolin members received ballots in the mail in late May so they could vote for the director of their choice in two districts. The election results will be announced during the business meeting.”

Sandwiches from the local pork and beef producers are available for sale. Ice cream, soft drinks and water also are available. Attendees will receive energy-saving light bulbs and be able to enjoy air-conditioned comfort inside John Hardin High School.

According to Whitehead, about 4,000 attended the Nolin annual meeting last year. The cooperative is expecting a good crowd this year BECAUSE it is the 75th annual meeting and anniversary of Nolin RECC.

As a co-op, the utility is member owned. A part of Touchtone Energy Cooperatives, Nolin RECC maintains offices in Elizabethtown and Radcliff. It serves much of Hardin and LaRue counties and has customers in adjacent parts of Breckinridge, Bullitt, Grayson, Green, Hart, Taylor and Meade counties.
