LPEA to host member appreciation luncheons
Luncheons set for Durango, Sept. 11 and Pagosa Springs, Sept. 12
DURANGO, Colo. – La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will host two complimentary luncheons for cooperative members, Wednesday, Sept. 11 in Durango, 45 Stewart St. (Bodo Industrial Park), and Thursday, Sept. 12 in Pagosa Springs, 603 S. 8th St.
“I’m very excited to meet our members,” says Jessica Matlock, LPEA’s new CEO. “The luncheons are an opportunity for us to get together, get to know each other, talk about your concerns, and remind us all of the spirit of being part of a cooperative.”
All LPEA members – those who pay their electric bills to LPEA – are invited to drop by either LPEA office between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on the scheduled luncheon dates. No reservations are required.
The casual buffet meals will be catered in Durango by Back Porch BBQ and in Pagosa Springs by Smoken Moe’s Unreal BBQ. The Bar D Wranglers will provide entertainment in Durango, with Joel Racheff set to perform in Pagosa Springs.
“The lunches will be held in LPEA’s truck barn/warehouse facilities at both locations,” said Ron Meier, manager of engineering and member relations. “It will offer our members a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at LPEA’s operations. These areas are not regularly open to the public.”
Members are asked to park out front at both offices, though handicapped parking will be available, and parking attendants will direct those requiring assistance. Golf cart “shuttles” will also be available for those who don’t wish to walk across the LPEA facility yards to the lunch locations.
