WH's 75th Annual Meeting

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Wright-Hennepin (WH) will be observing a very special milestone at its 2012 Annual Meeting on March 29. That is the very day the cooperative was started 75 years ago, and the Annual Meeting will be used to highlight and celebrate that achievement. The event will be at WH’s headquarters in Rockford, Minn. – located at 6800 Electric Drive.

WH will be displaying historical information and artifacts, showing an exhibit of what life was like before electricity, giving dinner theater presentations about rural electrification – starring a Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) impersonator – and distributing a commemorative video documentary on the history of the cooperative to every member in attendance. FDR started the Rural Electrification Administration at the height of the Great Depression.
