Share Your Story

Do you remember when the lights came on? 

We want to hear your story and share it with the new generation of cooperative members. 

As we talk about a new energy and the future of cooperatives we also want to connect with our past to feature stories describing the time when the co-op brought power to the farm, ranch or rural residence.  

We are asking for help from our members. Submit your stories or photos from the past that highlight when Kaw Valley Electric Cooperative or Leavenworth-Jefferson Electric Cooperative brought power to your lives. 

Did you live on a farm? Did you get new electric appliances? Do you remember when you were able to flip a light on for the first time in the home or barn? We want to hear about it! 

How to submit your stories. Drop by one of the FreeState offices, email marketing@freestate.coop or call 800-794-1989. You can mail photos, written accounts or other memorabilia to:

FreeState Electric Cooperative

Attn: Marketing

PO Box 70

McLouth, KS 66054 

Any tangible memorabilia will be returned to the member. We will begin sharing these stories in January 2020. We appreciate your willingness to share the past with the new generation of cooperative members.
