Recapping Our 83rd Annual Meeting

December 4, 2022

After two years of virtual annual membership meetings, our employees were excited to return to normal while seeing our members’ smiling faces. The morning started bright and early, with our employees greeting all the members in the parking lot as soon as they arrived. Members were greeted by familiar faces and some new faces of Union Power while enjoying a complimentary breakfast provided by Spiro’s Hilltop Restaurant.

Before the business meeting started, attendees of all ages visited our various vendors at our Energy Fair and Expo, such as Farm Bureau, Visit Stanly, Carolina Country Magazine, James River Equipment, and Green Works, to name a few. Also, the Kids Festival entertained approximately 100 children who enjoyed face painting, bouncy houses, an indoor playground, and basketball.

In addition, our members had an opportunity to learn about various electric cars, including the Porsche Taycan, Tesla Model Y, Ford F-150 Lighting, and Chevrolet Bolt. With all of these amazing vendors that participated, our members got to see and learn about the benefits of driving an electric vehicle and the difference in chargers by talking to our energy specialist team.

Our members got to hear live bluegrass music performed by Terry Baucom’s Dukes of Drive and view the presentation of colors by the Parkwood Air Force JROTC. General Manager and Executive Vice President Greg Andress addressed the members on stage, and we closed out the morning’s events with cash door prizes.

It was great to see everyone back out and enjoying our 83rd Annual Membership Meeting.
