• LPEA to host Halloween Trick-or-Treat for young children


    Co-op employees in Durango and Pagosa Springs to offer “spirited good time”

    It’ll be a “spirited good time” for young ones at La Plata Electric Association (LPEA), as the cooperative will host a special Open House for Children on Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, 2:30-5 p.m. at both of the cooperative’s offices, 45 Stewart St., Durango (Bodo Industrial Park) and in Pagosa Springs Office at 603 S. 8th St.

    The event is designed to offer a fun-filled, safe environment for youngsters (infants to 12-years-old) to enjoy Halloween festivities, according to Steve Gregg, LPEA manager of operations.

    “We are really targeting our customers with very young families who don’t want to be out on the streets for trick-or-treating, but want to give their kids a chance to dress up and have some fun,” said Gregg. “We’ll have ‘treats’ in both Durango and Pagosa, plus in Durango our staff members are organizing little games and refreshments, so bring your little ones by.”

    LPEA’s facilities will be transformed (thanks to the “spirit” of LPEA employees) into “frightfully fun” venues for trick-or-treating.

    “We’re excited to offer a safe alternative for young families to celebrate Halloween,” said Linda Looman, LPEA human resources director. “Our employees in Durango will also be in costumes and in the ‘spirit.’”

    The event is free to all young children accompanied by an adult LPEA customer. For additional information, contact Gregg at 970.382.3531 or sgregg@lpea.coop, or Looman at 970.382.3572 or llooman@lpea.coop.
