Capitol Fish Fry
On Wednesday, April 24, Sho-Me Power and AMEC (the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives) held the 18th annual Legislative Fish Fry at the Capitol building in Jefferson City. It was a rainy day for a fish fry, which often seems to be the case this time of year, but Sho-Me, AMEC, and other Cooperative employees from around the state powered through. The event inside the Capitol proved a success, with coop representatives serving 630 pounds of fish to a crowd of more than 1100.
“Electric co-ops are essential to the economic well-being of the communities they serve, providing good jobs, keeping the lights on, and helping to create a positive environment for families, farms and businesses to thrive.”
Jim Matheson, CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
