Fall River Electric Cooperative’s 2013 Meeting Celebrated 75 Years!
More than seventy five years ago, 90% of our rural ancestors were “living in the dark,” cooking on wood stoves, hauling water in buckets from a nearby well, putting perishable food in a stream or an icebox, and fearing the destruction that their gas or kerosene lamps could cause if accidentally knocked over inside their home or barn.
In 1938, a group of rural neighbors in the Ashton, Idaho area got together and formed Fall River Rural Electric Cooperative, Inc. This new nonprofit organization was one where everyone who received power from the Co-op was consider an owner, could vote for members to represent them on a board of directors, had a say in how the business was operated and had access to a locally based, friendly staff who was interested in answering their questions and concerns. Today, more than seventy eight years later, those same objectives and benefits of membership continue.
