NOTE: Wake Electric has a policy that if we draw the registration card 1) of a church,business or civic organization, or 2) of an employee of Wake Electric who is also a member or 3) of a board of director of Wake Electric who is also a member, then we will grant that member a cash prize, but will draw again until a non-employee, residential account is drawn. When this occurs, more cash prizes are awarded than the number of cash prizes originally advertised. The winner falling into that category this year is: Free Salvation Holiness Church of Louisburg ($100-church).

In honor of former Board President Roy Ed Jones, Jr., who passed away last fall, his wife, Barbara Jean Jones, was presented with a memorial plaque in honor of Jones’ many years of dedicated service.
