Basin Electric donates Polaris Ranger to special needs camp

Camp-Sign

Basin Electric recently donated a Polaris Ranger to Elks Camp Grassick, a special needs summer camp on Lake Isabel near Dawson, ND.

Part of being a cooperative means giving back to the communities you serve.

So when a special needs summer camp needed to upgrade its ailing 1970s golf cart to a newer maintenance utility vehicle, Basin Electric stepped in to help.

Elks Camp Grassick, located on Lake Isabel near Dawson, ND, is owned by the North Dakota State Elks Association and serves multiple age groups through six annual summer sessions.

Doug Peterson, Dakota Gasification Company fixed equipment engineer, is one of multiple cooperative employees who were familiar with the camp and eager to help. Peterson owns a cabin on Lake Isabel and has always admired the nearby summer camp.

“It’s a cool place,” Peterson says. “The camp is a yearly highlight for the adults and kids who attend.”

Peterson and others fixed up one of Basin Electric’s retired 6X6 Polaris Rangers and delivered it to Elks Camp Grassick on March 12.

Camp Director Dan Mimnaugh was excited to receive the utility vehicle, and says it will be put to good use.

“Our maintenance staff will thoroughly enjoy the Polaris Ranger,” Mimnaugh says. “A big thanks to Basin Electric for making this happen.”
