April 13 is Orcas Power and Light Cooperative’s Annual Meeting on the ferry.

All OPALCO members are invited to this fun-filled annual meeting. Lunch will be served at each of the ferry landings, and prizes handed out during the short cruise around the inter-island route. The main event is a member Q&A, following a brief “state of the co-op” address. Election results will be announced.

This year’s theme is “Safety” and we celebrate National Lineworker Appreciation Day with cupcakes. OPALCO’s partners will be on board as well, including, San Juan Islands Conservation District; BPA; Rock Island and T-Mobile. Show up at the ferry landing to register. No reservations required.

The travel schedule is:

San Juan Island – Register by 7 a.m.; ferry leaves at 8:30 a.m.; return to Friday Harbor at 11:15 a.m.

Orcas Island – Register at 7:30 a.m.; ferry leaves at 9:15 a.m.; return to Orcas 12:40 p.m.
