Big Night Out. . . .
My electric is supplied by Henry Co REMC and once a year they hold an annual meeting for all customers to vote on various district officials and lots of other boring stuff. Part of the meeting consists of drawing names and giving away several gift certificates. That must be what draws the crowd because the auditorium at New Castle High School was packed. You also get a $9 credit on your electric bill and this year we received the tote bag at left - going green. We got a nice ballpoint pen that I seem to have misplaced, and the bag contained scratch pads and a couple of those energy saving light bulbs that you need a Hazmat official to dispose of . My neighbors and I attended last year, too. I won a $25 gift certificate to Wal-Mart last year, but nothing this year. The entertainment was really good. We had "the countries funniest farmer". A young comedian from Ohio who told jokes about being a farmer, marriage, etc. I liked him. He was much better than the singing fireman of last year.
