Scenes from the 77th Annual REC Day
From Frito Chili Pies to games and prizes for kids, there was something for everyone to be had during the 2015 REC Day, held Saturday, Sept. 19, at the Grove Civic Center.

The 77th annual event drew in 1,857 registered members of the Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative.

Here's a few of my favorite pics from the event.
