We are a Cooperative.
On July 18, 1940 a large number of people met at Tom's Hall to hear Mr. Lee Lloyd tell about the REA plan to procure electricity for Washington Island.
A temporary Board of Directors was elected consisting of William C. Cornell, Charles O. Hansen, Andrew Cornell, Conrad A. Anderson, Martha Stelter, Theodore Gudmundsen, Anna Gunnlaugsson, George O. Mann, George Hansen, Robert Gunnerson and Arthur Hansen. These same eleven people became the incorporators of the Washington Island Electric Cooperative. The original Articles of Incorporation were accepted and filed by Secretary of State Fred Zimmerman on July 31, 1940.
