Mother nature is welcoming us back to school with warm temperatures this week


The heat is on this week. We have been notified by our power supplier, Buckeye Power, that they expect full load control Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. This will affect those LMRE members who have electric water heaters equipped with Load Control Switches.

Safety comes first

Line work is done in a very hazardous environment every day, and workers perform a wide variety of tasks. Much of the work is in the vicinity of or directly on power lines energized at 7,200 volts. If one mistake is made or if equipment fails, the results could be limb- and life-threatening.

LMRE sends 2 on Youth Tour

Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative sent two students this year as its ambassadors for the annual Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. 
Mapleton High sophomore Jules Frazier of Nova and Keystone High sophomore Diana Perez of Penfield Township represented LMRE on the seven-day, all-expense-paid trip in June.

Sullivan’s Brenda Wolfe named to LMRE board

Brenda Wolfe of Sullivan Township was appointed to the Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees at its June meeting. 
She replaces Nova’s Paul Bowman, who resigned in February citing health concerns. 

Clare-Mar Lakes to host Balloon Fest on Aug. 22

Clare-Mar Lakes Campground in Huntington Township will once again present the Wellington BalloonFest on Aug. 22. Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative again will serve as one of the event’s sponsors. 
The hot air balloons are scheduled to launch at 6:30 p.m., weather permitting. 
The photogenic balloon glow is scheduled for sunset at about 8:45 p.m. 

Members lauded for dedication to co-op at Annual Meeting

About 1,100 registered members — nearly 2,300 total, counting families and guests — attended Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative’s annual Family Fun Day and business meeting at the Lorain County Fairgrounds.

While the cooperative’s youngest members enjoyed bounce houses, Jungle Bob’s wild creatures, face painting, balloon art, and “live-line” safety demonstrations by LMRE’s linemen during the Family Fun Day, the business meeting focused on appreciation for members’ participation in the programs of their cooperative.

People Fund grant helps feed local seniors

Lorain County Meals on Wheels offers nutritious, home-delivered meals to seniors living in Wellington, Camden, Huntington, Brighton, Penfield, Pittsfield and Rochester townships.
     The Meals on Wheels program received an important boost from the Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative People Fund in April when it was awarded a $5,862 grant. 

People Fund aids Lorain County Sheriff Regional Bomb Squad

The Lorain County Sheriff Regional Bomb Squad now has advanced X-ray technology at its disposal thanks to a Lorain-Medina Rural Electric People Fund grant. 

Back by popular demand!

In 2014, the board of trustees wanted to attract younger families to the annual meeting.
    On a warm, sticky day, Family Fun Day attracted about 2,300 members and guests, which is slightly above the 10-year attendance average. The concept apparently worked, as 430 wristbands were issued to children. 
    Family Fun Day is coming back in 2015. Festivities begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington.
