OPALCO member owners are invited to meet with OPALCO Board Member Winnie Adams for tea and talk about OPALCO. The talks are an opportunity to meet directly with an OPALCO Board member.

Ms. Adams is hosting two events, the first on Wednesday, March 23rd, 5:00 – 6:30 PM and a second tea on Thursday, March 24th, 1:30 – 3:00 PM in the Orcas Island Library meeting room.

All are welcome to join Winnie at the Library for an informal conversation about the rate increases of the last year, and any other topics of interest. Also, Ms. Adams will give a short talk outlining the vision that the Board is working toward for the future of the Cooperative. She will take questions, and for those questions she cannot answer, she’s committed to getting back to members with an answer from the OPALCO team.

If you are unable to make either date, you are invited to email Winnie Adams with comments or questions to
