Duncan’s Digest – SECO Energy’s 82nd Annual Meeting
Our 82nd Annual Meeting is Saturday, March 28, at 293 S. US Highway 301 in Sumterville. Registration opens at 8 a.m. and the Business Meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. The live prize drawing is held after the Business Meeting and wraps up around noon.
Even if you can’t attend, there are ways to win this year. All members are invited to vote on Annual Meeting business in advance. On the SECO Energy homepage, click on the VOTE banner and cast your vote prior to Thursday, March 26 at 5 p.m. for a chance to win a golf cart, gift cards, bill credits, tools, Nest thermostats, Apple TVs, air fryers, Instapots, Ring doorbells and other great prizes. See the complete prize list on page four.
If you do attend the March 28 meeting, you’ll enjoy a light breakfast and entertainment by Margo Rochelle & Rodeo Drive Band. Each registered member will receive our 2019 Annual Report, a special gift and an LED from our wholesale power provider Seminole Electric Cooperative.
This year, there are three ways to win. Members who attend the Annual Meeting are eligible for the door prize drawing that begins at the conclusion of the Business Meeting. If you RSVP online and attend the Meeting, you are entered into a drawing for a $300 bill credit. And again, there are great prizes for members who vote on Annual Meeting business by mail or online before March 26 at 5 p.m. Attendance is NOT required to win.
The grand prizes for Annual Meeting attendees are a refurbished 2010 Chevy Colorado 4X4, an electric golf cart, four cash prizes, bill credits, Kindles, Apple TVs, Ring doorbells, air fryers, Instapots and more. Turn to page four for a list of all prizes.
Even if you RSVP and vote in advance, you must register upon entrance to receive your ticket set for breakfast, gifts and the door prize drawing. For speedy registration, bring a copy of your bill. Photo ID is required. The prize ticket barrels are located just after Registration Tents. The map on the next page clearly marks the Stations.
Visit the Energy Showcase to learn more about energy efficiency, talk with energy-efficiency vendors and stop by Station 4 in the same tent for your free LED. Enjoy live music under the Pavilion and find a dance partner. Visit our electric vehicle (EV) show behind the Energy Showcase tent.

You’ll find a variety of seating areas with sound and screens. We accommodate 3,600 in the covered Pavilion and another 2,000 in the grass areas. Picnic and high-top tables are first-come, first-served. You are welcome to bring your own picnic blankets or folding chairs.
