COSHOCTON – The cafeteria at River View High School was already filled to capacity at 5:15 p.m. on Friday evening, July 26 as customers of Frontier Power made the trek to Warsaw to enjoy a grilled hot dog, Whit’s Frozen Custard, chips, cheese and a beverage prior to the business meeting in the auditorium. The company had displays of generators, water heaters and more while youngsters received a plastic yellow “safety” hat which they wore proudly throughout the evening.

Kelly Kendall, who is the manager of administration and office services for the company, said, “I think people look forward to seeing each other. I think they enjoy coming and eating a hot dog, seeing the entertainment and getting $10 off their bill. We give everyone an attendance gift; I think they just look forward to the whole experience. The doors were supposed to open at 5, but there were people here at 4 p.m. We couldn’t open yet, but they were waiting.”

According to Kendall, the company maintains 1,500 miles of utility lines and has a strategic plan to replace 22 miles of line each year.”

There were displays from Frontier Power, Frontier Propane and Frontier Supply and posters with each employee’s picture so you can see who you are dealing with when you call on the phone. There also was information on outages, how people can look on the internet to get information about an outage.

“Our job is to be there when things happen,” said Kendall. “Our customers are also members. They have a vested interest in our co-op so a positive relationship means a lot to them and to us. We like to be active in the community; I think that the members appreciate that too.”
