East River Electric Cooperative’s Madison crews removed a large evergreen tree from the yard of the same home that donated the Community Christmas Tree last year. They transported the tree from the residential area to the Dairy Queen parking lot. Employees from the City of Madison assisted East River in setting the tree. The Madison Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Magical Christmas Celebration on Saturday, December 1 to light the tree.
East River employees participated in a Thanksgiving food drive for the Lake County Food Pantry. Employees surpassed their goal of providing 24 complete Thanksgiving meals for local families. The meals included ham, dressing, potatoes and gravy, side dishes and desserts. Thank you to the Employees Committee for organizing the food drive.
