Coming April 13 is Orcas Power and Light Cooperative’s Annual Meeting on the ferry.

All OPALCO members are invited to this fun-filled annual meeting. OPALCO holds its annual meeting on the inter-island ferry to make it easy for everyone. Lunch will be served at each of the ferry landings, and prizes will be handed out during the short cruise around the inter-island route. The main event is a member Q&A, following a brief “state of the co-op” address. Election results will be announced.

This year’s theme is “Safety,” and we celebrate National Lineworker Appreciation Day with cupcakes. OPALCO’s partners will be onboard as well, including San Juan Islands Conservation District; BPA; Rock Island Communications; and T-Mobile. Show up at the ferry landing to register. No reservations required.

The travel schedule is:

San Juan Island – Register by 7 a.m.; ferry leaves at 8:30 a.m.; return to Friday Harbor at 11:15 a.m.

Orcas Island – Register at 7:30 a.m.; ferry leaves at 9:15 a.m.; return to Orcas 12:40 p.m.

Shaw Island – Register on the ferry; ferry leaves at 9:30 a.m.; return to Shaw at 12:20 p.m.

Lopez Island – Register at 8:45 a.m.; ferry leaves at 9:55 a.m.; return to Lopez at 1 p.m.
