Why we’re grateful in this unusual year
The most unusual year that most of us have ever lived through is drawing to a close. With so many still hurting from this difficult year, it should be easy to say good riddance to 2020.
But a funny thing happened on the way to 2021. When you think about it just a little, you realize there are a lot of reasons to give thanks. We’re grateful for…
…The continued smooth operations of Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, providing the safe, affordable and reliable electricity people need and expect.
… co-op employees who demonstrated true cooperative spirit as they adapted quickly to a new reality — all while juggling childcare, school and work at home for months.
…for the vital role electricity plays in connecting us all electronically, enabling distance learning opportunities, providing entertainment and cooking more memorable family meals.
…EKPC’s safety program that positioned us to respond quickly at the onset of the pandemic crisis.
…our economic development team, who are doing everything possible to strengthen the economies in 87 Kentucky counties.
…our partnership with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, which continues training new cooperative linemen and many other needed workers.
…green lights and American flags throughout Kentucky, reminding us of our unity in the fight.
And, finally, we’re grateful for the 16 owner-member cooperatives and the 1.2 million people they serve. You kept our communities strong even in difficult times.
Think about your own gratitude list. Then, let’s all enter the New Year with more joy in our hearts and renewed hope for a better tomorrow.
