2019 DMEA Annual Meeting

June 14, 2019

June 14, 2019 — Next week, DMEA members will take over Hotchkiss High School for the co-op’s annual meeting. However, calling it a meeting doesn’t quite do the event justice this year, because DMEA has planned a night of true family fun—a magician, live music, carnival games, face painting, and more.

The event will be held Thursday, June 20 at Hotchkiss High School (438 Bulldog St.) from 5:00 – 9:00 PM. It will kick off at 5:00 PM with a free grilled dinner of local bratwursts with all the fixin’s, plus pie for dessert. At this time, members can also cast their vote in DMEA’s 2019 elections, if they haven’t already done so.  Also, during dinner, members can enjoy a magic show by Ty Gallenbeck, who has performed on the popular television show America’s Got Talent and in Las Vegas.

The voting polls will close at 6:00 PM and a short business meeting will be held until 7:00 PM. Your co-op CEO, Jasen Bronec, and Board President, Bill Patterson, will report on the co-op's activities over the past year. Plus, members will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Then, the real family fun kicks off! Members will head out to the practice field for live music by Neon Sky and a kid’s carnival, complete with cotton candy, balloon animals, games, and great prizes. Carnival games include putt-putt, darts, ring toss, and more for kids to play. Kids can redeem their game tickets at the prize booth for tons of fun toys, plus have an opportunity to win one of the grand prizes—a Monster Jam Grave Digger battery-powered rider or a Pink Polaris battery-powered rider!

Members are encouraged to bring their own chairs, but first 300 to register at the event will also receive a festival blanket so they can enjoy the tunes on the lawn!
