Share Your Story

Do you remember when the lights came on? 

We want to hear your story and share it with the new generation of cooperative members. 

As we talk about a new energy and the future of cooperatives we also want to connect with our past to feature stories describing the time when the co-op brought power to the farm, ranch or rural residence.  

A New Cooperative Energy

A new generation of members brings new energy to local electric cooperatives, like FreeState.

Across the nation America’s small communities are changing, but not in the way you think. As these communities change in demographics, the values held by generations before to make these communities thrive, are stronger than ever. 

Sharing Success with F.W. Huston Medical Center

Jeanine Murphy and Steve Foss presented the gift.

FreeState Electric Cooperative’s 80 employees and nine trustees rallied to raise $7,500 that was matched by the cooperative’s primary lender, CoBank. The effort is part of an annual internal donation drive that assists local nonprofit organizations and raised a total of $15,000 for F.W. Huston Medical Center in Winchester.
