56 - CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, August 14 - August 20, 1998 Delaware Electric Co-op holds annual meeting, elects directors By Rosanne Pack It might not have been the ab- solute biggest, but Delaware Elec- tric Cooperative officials declared it one of the best as 3,400 people sat down to fried chicken at the annual meeting Aug. 4. At the meeting each year, capi- tal credits checks are disbursed and members are elected to the board of directors. In addition, there is the matter of the free chicken dinner, entertainment and an assortment of displays by state agencies and nonprofit organiza- tions. This year, 31,000 capital credit checks totaling $1.3 million for consumers who were on DEC lines in 1984 were issued. All who are served by the cooperative hold membership and are part-owner of the electric corporation. Members receive capital credits when there are funds remaining at the end of the fiscal year; the funds are di- vided among members in propor- tion to how much electricity they paid for during the year. Paul Bienvenue, DEC general manager, told the membership that the retirement of capital cred- its is an indication that the board of directors and management are performing in the best interest of co-op members. He said the coop- erative will continue to hold the line on rates. In the only contested board election, Fenwick resident and in- cumbent for District 7, John Sparks, Jr., retained his seat in a challenge from Jeremy Ryan, Ocean View. Two directors ran unopposed; they are Clarence Scuse, Jr., Smyrna, District 1; and Ernest Fry, Milford, District 4. The Epworth Quartet sang and humorist Cotton Ivy provided his brand of Tennessee country hu- mor. Bayhealth Medical Cen- ter/Milford Memorial Hospital, the Department of Agriculture and the Delaware State Police were among the agencies and or- ganizations that brought displays. The 62-year-old DEC furnishes power to 55,000 consumers in Kent and Sussex counties.
