Co-op employees, your votes are needed!

Basin Electric has once again donated a decorated Christmas tree to Pride, Inc.’s Celebration of Trees. The program, which has been around since 2001, has moved from Kirkwood Mall to the Bismarck Civic Center (ND) this year.

Basin Electric’s tree sits with others donated by businesses from around Bismarck-Mandan, waiting to be voted on for first place. Employees can submit their votes for Basin Electric’s tree by the Dec. 13 deadline.

Voters have two options: They can either vote during the Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase Dec. 6-8 at the Civic Center Exhibit Hall, or they can support the co-op’s tree online: Celebration of Trees voting form.

All donated trees will be given to families in need throughout the community.

This year’s Basin Electric tree was decorated by Senior Administrative Assistants Shawnel Maxwell and Heather Schlenker, as well as Tiffany Bailey, engineering document coordinator III.

“The trees go to families that, more than likely, wouldn’t have one otherwise. What a great way to show community spirit,” Schlenker says.
