Annual Meeting

We're Looking Forward To Another Great Year!

Each year, South River EMC is pleased to offer an opportunity to all member-owners of the Cooperative to gather for fellowship and to hear of the business of their Cooperative. This event is the Annual Meeting of Members, which will be April 20, 2017 at the Crown Arena and Theatre in Fayetteville. Don't forget, we're working in partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank to collect food donations at the annual meeting and every piece counts. Want to know what they need?



Documents to read in preparation for the meeting:

Doors Open At 6 p.m.

Arena Entertainment (6-7:25 p.m.) Emily Minor

The evening’s arena entertainment will be provided by Emily Minor.
The North Carolina native began her journey on American Idol in 2007, making it to the Top 50 “Hollywood” round. Upon seeing the audience and judges’ response, this action orientated go getter graduated from East Carolina University and moved to Nashville, TN.
With vocals likened to Miranda Lambert and Jennifer Nettles, Minor has become a sought after entertainer. Her delivery is straight up and honest with no sugar coating added. The songstress is an energetic sunburst full of big surprises poised to make a lasting impression.

Theatre Entertainment (6:15-7:15 p.m.) Beck and Kasie

A married duo will bring folk/alternative/indie Christian tunes to the theatre before the business meeting this year. Come see what they're all about!



Vendor Bazaar (6- 7:30 p.m.)
Each year we welcome around 50 or so vendors with fun, interesting and helpful products. Come ready to pick up a must needed item, or just to shop around. This year we'll be welcoming some new vendors along with many of our favorite vendors.


Children's Area (6- 7:30 p.m.)
The Kids’ Korner offers a safe, secure, fun place for you to leave your children (ages 4 to 12-years-old) while you enjoy the meeting. We will have inflatable games for the children and snacks will be provided. All you need to do is sign them up in the Kids’ Korner section and then pick them up before the business meeting. Your children will be in safe hands and having a great time!
