SRE Hosts Annual Membership Meeting

After last year’s successful drive-thru style meeting, our members were able to meet in person once again—with social distancing encouraged and hand sanitizing stations readily available—at this year’s membership meeting.

More than 100 attendees enjoyed fellowship and the opportunity to hear about the cooperative’s plans for 2021. Many came to learn about the launch of fiber internet through our subsidiary, Singing River Connect, and the three fiber pilot projects in Brewer, Vestry, and Agricola communities. Members were able to sign up onsite for the new fiber service and walked away with a cool Bluetooth speaker highlighting the Singing River Connect logo.

Board members Cary W. Williams, District 1; Travis Baker, District 2; Edward H. Thornton, District 3; and Mark LaSalle were re-elected to their board seat for a three-year term.
