CHELCO celebrates 75 years of service
In August, Choctawhatchee Electric Cooperative marked 75 years of providing electricity to rural Walton and Okaloosa, as well as portions of Holmes and Santa Rosa, counties.
We are celebrating by inviting everyone to visit a display of historic artifacts at the Walton County Heritage
Museum. The exhibit opened Aug. 4. and features household items used in the days before and shortly after electrification.
The display will move to the Walton County Coastal Branch Library in September and the Freeport Library in October. Venues in Okaloosa County will be announced for the months of November and December.
The collection of artifacts will be featured at the 2016 Chautauqua Assembly in January, as well as CHELCO’s Annual Meeting in April where the anniversary celebration will culminate.
