NORTH BALTIMORE, Ohio – Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative held its Annual Meeting for the first time at its office in North Baltimore this past Saturday, September 25 to a crowd of around 1,500 people.

The meeting covered several co-op business and financial items, including reports from President & CEO George Walton, and Board Chairman Ed Crawford. They outlined sales from the past year, wholesale cost of power and some current company projects. The day also included a full slate of activities, including children’s inflatables, booths and exhibits to visit, and other giveaways, which all added to the excitement of the day, preceded by a free buffet meal of eggs, ham, sausage, pancakes and more. A member food drive was held, which benefited the North Baltimore Food Assistance Program.

The results of recent trustee elections were announced, as well as the swearing in of each re-elected trustee at the meeting. Members from District 3 re-elected Tom Dierksheide; this district includes Freedom, Montgomery and Perry Townships of Wood County, and Madison and Scott Townships of Sandusky County. Dave Corbin was re-elected in District 6, which is comprised of Cass, Washington and Biglick Townships of Hancock County, and Big Springs Township of Seneca County. In District 9, John Edie was re-elected, and his district includes Amanda, Madison and Delaware Townships of Hancock County, Blanchard and Jackson Townships of Hardin County, and Ridge and Richland Townships of Wyandot County.

The entire event was also webcast across the Internet.
