As we enter a month of reflection and thanksgiving, one thing at the forefront of our minds at JOEMC is how grateful we are to serve you, our cooperative members. Safe, reliable and affordable electricity is a daily necessity and we are thankful to both power and empower our members and our communities.

Our commitment to serving you extends far beyond providing electricity. We also invest in local communities by providing scholarships, grants and educational opportunities (see the
article on page one of this newsletter about the exciting Solar in Schools Project with Queens Creek Elementary School). From securing loans that fund much-needed community projects and generate new economic development, to providing Bright Ideas grants that bring innovative classroom projects to life, we strive to strengthen all aspects of our communities
and give them new opportunities to grow and thrive.

As a not-for-profit business, JOEMC’s core mission is service. And because our co-op is locally owned and operated, we live and work alongside our members. We share your sense of pride in our communities and are grateful for the many ways we can contribute to their success.

We are also thankful for your commitment to our co-op, from taking the time to attend our annual meeting and learning about your cooperative and the various services and programs that we offer, to enriching our communities by your active participation in civic groups, little leagues and other community-changing organizations. By choosing to participate and get involved, together we are improving the local quality of life.

Thank you for being part of Jones-Onslow EMC and for your role in helping us live out the cooperative difference. We value your support and are thankful today, and every day, to continue serving you.

Happy Thanksgiving! We wish all of you a safe and happy holiday.
