Live music highlighted Basin Electric’s celebration of our country’s military men and women May 20 at Basin Electric Headquarters.
The celebration, part of Military Appreciation Month, also included the opportunity for employees to wear jeans. Donations and freewill donation lunch proceeds went toward Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a resource for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one in the military.
Live music was provided on Basin Electric’s lawn by the Burning Hills Singers, who perform every night of the summer as part of the Medora Musical, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Medora, ND. The group had this message for Basin Electric prior to their arrival.
Annie Lindseth, Basin Electric communications and media specialist, helped organize the day’s activities at the cooperative. Lindseth has a friend in the U.S. Army National Guard who recently returned home, and understands the importance or Military Appreciation Month.
“I think it’s good to recognize them because everybody needs to be recognized for the hard work they do, and they definitely do a lot of hard work and put a lot of time and effort into serving our country,” Lindseth says. “I think it’s great.”
