The co-op is ecstatic about the turnout since it is the first meeting since Hurricane Matthew. 

"To hear their applause and accolades and praise for our linemen and to the people who worked here during Hurricane Matthew. It is certainly rewarding,” said Mark Bolton, with Coastal Electric Cooperative.

Coastal Electric also handed out more than 20 door prizes, including TV's and the grand prize: $1,000 cash!

Our own Dawn Baker was the host.
