Co-op to host outdoor Earth Day event Apr. 22

Roanoke Electric Cooperative invites member-owners to join its annual outdoor Earth Day celebration at its headquarters on April 22, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

The annual celebration recognizes how we can make our world a happier, healthier place to live.  The co-op’s celebration will feature a small vendor showcase, giveaways, a meet-and-greet with co-op representatives, and a food truck.

Participants can also test-drive the co-op's electric vehicle, a Tesla.  However, the test drives must be scheduled in advance, and a valid driver’s license is required.

“We are excited for our member-owners to join us at this year’s celebration,” said Patrice Jordan, the co-op’s coordinator of community relations and engagement.  “Our planet is an amazing place, but it needs our help to thrive!  Together, we can all demonstrate our shared support for protecting the environment.”

To learn more about the event or sign up to test-drive the co-op's Tesla, contact Patrice Jordan at 252-209-2236.
