Co-op to host Outdoor Earth Day event, April 23

Roanoke Electric Co-op invites member-owners to join its outdoor Earth Day celebration,  April 23, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at its headquarters.

The annual observance recognizes the importance of protecting the planet and its resources.  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 will also have the opportunity to test-drive the co-op’s electric vehicle, a Tesla. However, the test-drives must be scheduled in advance.  A valid driver’s license is also required.

“We are excited to host this year’s Earth Day celebration event for our member-owners,” said Patrice Jordan, the co-op’s coordinator of community relations and engagement. “We hope you will join your co-op family, friends and neighbors, as we demonstrate our shared support for protecting the environment.”

In keeping with recommended COVID safety protocols, masks and social distancing are required for attendance.
