From the Manager - February 2024

We hope all our members are being safe this winter. Over the last several years, February has had some brutal winter weather. Make sure you are prepared in your home and car for winter storm emergencies. Your car should have a winter preparedness kit with blankets and extra warm clothes, some food and water, jumper cables, first aid kit, a flashlight with batteries, and other items that may help you get out of the snow or let passersby know that you are stranded.

When you look in the center section this month, you will see a spot for our Community Spotlight. Each month, we hope to have a community event to spotlight in Illinois Country Living. We submit our articles a month in advance of them being printed, so events should be submitted one month prior to the event date. We will select one event each month to spotlight here. If you have an event to be considered, send it to us either by email at or by mail to Clay Electric Co-operative — Community Spotlight, P.O. Box 517, Flora, IL 62839.

Lastly, be sure to keep an eye out for your member number in the center section of this magazine. There are three member numbers hidden within the pages of Clay Electric News. If you spot your number and give us a call, you will win a $5 discount on your next bill!
