Three Ohio electric co-ops celebrate National Family Month with weekly giveaways

PAULDING, MALINTA, & ST MARYS, OH — June is National Family Month — a time to prioritize family, strong relationships, a commitment to communication, and quality time spent with those you love. As not-for-profit co-ops focused on community, Paulding Putnam Electric (PPEC), Midwest Electric, and Tricounty Rural Electric stand behind strong families, which is why the co-ops are giving away family-friendly prize packs this June. 

Only members of each co-op are eligible to win. PPEC and Midwest Electric members can enter to win by sharing the co-ops’ family month posts on Facebook each week; winners will be announced on Monday mornings on Facebook. All three co-ops allow members to register on their websites as well, where full rules and details can be found.

  • Prizes for PPEC include Fort Wayne (Indiana) and Toledo Zoo tickets, a rental voucher from Auglaize Canoe and Kayak (Oakwood), Camp Clay admission tickets to the splash park (Van Wert), and a movie night at the Van Del Drive-In Theater (Middle Point). Learn more on PPEC’s website.
  • Prizes for Midwest Electric include tickets to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, Pla-More Lanes bowling (Coldwater), Wapak Escape Room (Wapakoneta), and a voucher for canoeing/kayaking with Fort Amanda Canoe Livery (Cridersville). Learn more on Midwest’s website.
  • Prizes for Tricounty REC include tickets to Sauder Village, tickets to the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium, and a movie night package. Enter for the drawing on their website by June 30, 2022. Winners will be drawn July 1.
