North Arkansas Electric Cooperative will celebrate 79 years of service during its Annual Meeting Thursday. The event will be held at the Salem Civic Center on the Fulton County Fairgrounds.

NAEC says the day will be filled with fun for all ages, as well as a free barbecue meal. Country singer Phil Vassar and local band The Kattie Laney Project will perform. Magician Scott Davis will also be on hand. Inflatables will be available for younger children, and bingo with prizes will be played for children and adults.

NAEC is encouraging attendees to stay to the end of the business meeting that begins at 7. Registered cooperative members will be eligible to win a retired service truck and other prizes.

The 2018 Annual Report was mailed to each member in the middle of May. Included with the Annual Report was a registration card unique to each member. NAEC requests each member bring the registration card to the Annual Meeting to speed registration.

The business session will include the election of one member to serve on the board of directors. A brief summary of cooperative operations, Operation Round Up scholarship recipients and other reports will be presented to the membership.

Registration will be held from 1:30 until 6:45, with bingo from 1:30 until 3:30 and entertainment from 4 until 6:45. The barbecue meal will be served beginning at 4:15, with the business session wrapping up the day’s activities at 7.
