Washer and dryer sale in August

For the month of August, we are having a washers and dryer sale. This sale is just on appliances we have in stock. The price will be 8 percent off the original price. Stop in and check out what we have.

Tom York

I would also like to mention we lost a very loyal past employee from North Itasca Electric last month. Tom York dedicated 42 years to the Co-op. and even after he retired he still came in a couple of times a week to have coffee and visit with some of us that were here when he was.

Tom was born June 8, 1938 and passed away on June 15, 2017 at the age of 79. Tom loved to do odd jobs for anyone who needed help, he was a very generous man. He took care of his wife Priscilla for many years until she passed away. We had many conversations about Priscilla through the years. Tom was very good to her. He loved to do things for the church whether it be donating an appliance, doing carpentry work, or just bringing a dish to a potluck. He loved it when someone would ask for a recipe, or if someone would say, “Tom will you bring--------------,” because it was so good. He would come in for coffee and tell us all about it with a big smile on his face.

We will miss Tom, not only was he a coworker of mine but also a neighbor and a friend. I bet he is really smiling now that he is reunited with his wife!
