*#•' 15,000 At 39th REC Meeting More than 15,000 were in Wilton Sept. 5 for the 39th annual meeting of Eastern Iowa Light and Power Cooperative. Country music, a barbecue lunch, helicopter rides and a chance to meet politicians and "just folks" attracted the crowd which veteran observers think may have set a record for the REC meeting. Drawings for more than $15,000 in attendance prizes kept most of 'the cooperative's members and visitors present busy when they weren't being entertained, fed, introduced or flown. An early-evening hot air balloon ascension added to the festivities at the 19-acre annual meeting site. Gov. Robert D. Ray was on hand to welcome the afternoon crowd, and Oliver Hansen, state superintendent of banking from 1971 to 1973, was the featured speaker. Virgil Corey, Morning Sun farmer and former high school vocational agriculture teacher, was elected president of the REC's board of directors. Other officers chosen by the 15-man board are: Victor Wulf, Durant, vice-president; Kenneth Helfert, Sabula, treasurer; F. W. Schnoebelen, Riverside, secretary; and Eugene Schmidt, Lost Nation, executive board member. Winners of the three main attendance prizes were: Gary Rathmann, Grand Mound, who won a microwave oven that was the Early Bird prize; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Howe, Muscatine, who won a television-stereo-radio home entertainment theater; and Mrs. Wanda Symmonds, Wilton, who won the top evening prize, a dishwasher.
