Administrators, employees, directors and guests celebrated Bandera Electric Cooperative's 75th Anniversary with a special ceremony held Tuesday morning, Nov. 12. Employees submitted their visions of what the cooperative might be like in 25 years - the cooperative's 100th anniversary. The comments, along with pictures of 2013's employees and other bits of history will be safely encapsulated to await rediscovery after another quarter of a century. After brief opening remarks by BEC's General Manager Bill Hetherington, members of the board of directors sliced up and served the anniversary cake.
