Residents are invited to attend a free Edmond Electric and Edmond Water Resources Open House on Thursday, October 17, held in conjunction with National Public Power Week from Oct. 6-12. The event had been scheduled for Oct. 10 but was changed to Oct. 17 because of anticipated rain and strong winds, said Casey Moore, City of Edmond director of Marketing and Public Relations.
The Open House is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at The Cross Timbers Public Service Center is located just east of U.S. Interstate 35 on Covell Road.
This year’s event will include children's safety demonstrations, bucket truck rides and lineman rescue demonstrations. Canned goods and personal hygiene donations will be collected for the Project 66 Food Pantry. Items can be dropped off at the T-shirt tent at Open House.
Free giveaways along with T-shirts will be available while supplies last. The Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) will be providing walking tacos during the event while they last. Various booths will provide information about city programs and services.
The family-friendly event will also have displays and booths from UCO Athletics as well as many of the City of Edmond’s departments.
