Cumming, GA – (October 5, 2016) – October is National Cooperative Month and Sawnee EMC is urging its approximately 147,000 members to join in and celebrate the cooperative difference. For more than 80 years, organizations across the country have championed the benefits of a cooperative network and have used it as an opportunity to educate others about the value of the cooperative business model.

Furthermore, on Friday, Oct. 14, 2016, Sawnee EMC invites you to take advantage of their FREE Co-op Connections Card by participating in the first-ever National Co-op Connections Day, sponsored by Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives.
