CVEA Packed October with Co-op Month Fun!

CVEA celebrated this year's Cooperative Month with events throughout October that brought the Cooperative and Community together.
Co-op Month kicked off with CVEA's annual Ruralite Cover Photo Contest. Members compete to have their photo on the cover and win $100 per winning photo. Roughly 43 photos were submitted from nine local photographers. CVEA employees are judging photos now and winners will be announced soon.
CVEA and CV Telecom partnered on another successful Co-op Month food drive. Thanks to members' donations, your local Cooperatives were able to bring non-perishable food items to the CRNA Food Bank and the Copper River Crisis Pregnancy Center; giving both organizations the ability to provide extra assistance to their clients as we head into winter. People who brought food were rewarded with an entry into a drawing for a $100 CVEA energy credit or a $100 CVT service credit. Congratulations to Copper Basin winners Pat Williams and Shawn Conway!
The fourth annual Downtown Glennallen Halloween Spooktacular was a HUGE success. Roughly 175 kids, joined by their adult friends and family, hit the highway in search of treats and fun, and they found it, at 31 local businesses who participated in CVEA's event this year. CVEA turned the office into a circus, offered five treat stops, circus games, a free gift, and a cool circus themed photo booth, complete with a printed photo to take home. CVEA wasn't alone; several businesses went beyond candy and had fun decorations and activities. Fun was had by all and CVEA was pleased to work with community businesses to create a fun, safe, and easy to access trick or treating experience for kids young and old.
When CVEA employees weren't decorating or dressing up for the circus, they spent time volunteering their lunch hours each week throughout the month of October processing recyclables at the Recycling Our Areas Resources Recycling Center in downtown Glennallen. CVEA employees generously donate their time to this cause each October during Co-op Month.
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the CVEA Co-op Month events this year, and a thanks to the Copper River Record and the Copper River School District for partnering on the Halloween Spooktacular advertising and promotions.
