We began distributing this year’s patronage and equity redemption checks with our May open house events in Mt Horeb, LaFarge, and Westby. With a little help from Mother Nature, we were lucky to have beautiful weather and an even better turnout for each open house. If you were not able to stop in to pick up your check this year, you should see it arrive in your mailbox by mid-June. Checks began getting mailed the last week of May and could take a couple of weeks to complete.
