At Mohave Electric, we have the utmost pride for our country and those who have served this country. On November 7, Mohave Electric employees donated their time in the Paul Walsh Memorial Veteran’s Parade to show our respect to those who served or are currently serving.

All branches of service were represented with flags hung from our original Old Number One. This year, due to COVID-19 regulations, the normal parade routine changed. Rather than walkers handing out goodies and a trailer decorated behind Old Number One, Mohave Electric employees with Jeeps followed behind Old Number One, flying American flags, service flags, and Mohave Electric flags.

The parade had more than 100 vehicles. Participants from different groups and businesses were decked out in patriotic clothing. Mohave Electric Cooperative is proud to be a part of community events such as this. No matter the restrictions in place, our goal was to show our continued community support.

In addition to the parade, Mohave Electric highlighted employees who served our country with social media posts throughout November. It is always a great day to highlight our staff, who have amazing past employment history.

Mohave Electric will continue to attend parades and events to celebrate the community. We know times are uncertain for a variety of community events, but we will work to be a part of as much as we can.

Once more, thank you to all who served, who are serving or plan to serve, and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the freedom we have today.
