May 2023

2023 Annual Meeting

On Saturday, April 22, at the Suwannee County Agricultural Coliseum, SVEC held its first in-person annual meeting since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 1,456 members who registered for the meeting by proxy or in person reelected trustees Mike Adams, District 1; Jerry Goff, District 2; and BeBe Roberson, District 3; to serve 3-year terms on the board. Members also voted to approve the proposed changes to the bylaws.
All members who registered for the meeting will receive a $25 gift card in the mail. It takes time to process the cards, so if you registered for the meeting, please allow four to five weeks for your card to arrive.

Students on Eggshells

SVEC was excited to join in Suwannee Pineview Elementary’s egg drop. The popular annual event tasks students with creating a protective carrier that can keep a raw egg from breaking when dropped about 55 feet from a raised bucket truck.

Children draw on their creativity and knowledge of science while using a wide variety of materials, such as popcorn, bubble wrap and homemade parachutes.
