Dakota Electric awards $500 to local winners of award.
Dakota Electric Association named Dakota City Heritage Village, Farmington, as the local 2013 Touchstone Energy Community Award winner. Defending the Blue Line, Hastings, Farmington Yellow Ribbon Network and Greenleaf Elementary School were named runners-up, and each of the four applicants received a plaque and a check for $500. “Dakota Electric is proud to be able to recognize these organizations doing great work in our local communities,” said Greg Miller, Dakota Electric’s president and chief executive officer. “As a member-owned cooperative, we are committed to our local communities and this is a way to encourage and honor those who are like-minded.” Dakota City Heritage Village serves as a historical resource for the county and provides educational opportunities and events for students, daycare groups, scouting organizations and adults to learn about local history.
