Manager’s Message – September 2023

Changing of the Seasons

September is upon us, and we are busy transitioning from summer to fall. Cooler temperatures are on their way. It’s time for the last crop harvests, as well as time for repair or replacement work. The children have returned to school, too.

As the amount of daylight decreases, we need to be more aware of our surroundings while traveling for our daily activities. It is especially important to be safe around those who work in and near the travel lanes of our roads and highways.

Please be respectful of the state of Oregon Move Over Law, which requires drivers to move over a lane or slow down 5 miles below the speed limit when approaching a motor vehicle that is stopped and is displaying required warning lights or hazard lights, or when approaching a person indicating distress by using emergency flares or posting emergency signs.

Pay special attention and be alert for students around school buses and school zones.

Wasco Electric Cooperative values everyone’s safety. We hope you do, too.

WECARE Donations

Each year, the cooperative reaches out to its members, asking for support of those less fortunate who struggle to make financial ends meet. Your contributions to our WECare program help many families each year.

We are again asking for your support this month. With your September electric bill, you will find a donation card to help support your friends and neighbors. For more information on the benefits of this program, visit our WECARE program news story.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your cooperative, please call or stop by the office.

Paul Titus
Interim General Manager
