Dry Fork Station employees serve meal at senior center

For the fourth year, employees from Dry Fork Station served a Christmas meal at the Gillette Senior Center. More than 250 seniors were treated with service by 12 Basin employees to a mouth-watering meal of pot roast, garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and desserts.

Heidi Hockett, Basin Electric project coordinator, says the seniors look forward to this annual meal and it’s a special time for the seniors and Dry Fork employees.

“It’s a time to come together as a current workforce and a past workforce that has guided us over the decades,” says Hockett. “It’s a time to reminisce and gain insight from our seniors on their job, life and vocational experiences. It’s a time for us to stop and listen and to celebrate the successes of the past. It’s a time to look at pictures of their grandkids and listen to all their vacation and retirements plans. But mainly, it is a time for the seniors to have camaraderie with those community members who they do not normally come into contact with.”
