Executive director Deborah Shaffer and board president Cindy Starr are pleased to announce the generous support of Delta Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) for the completion of the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center (GMAEC). A grant in the amount of $7,500 has been awarded, as well as the in-kind donation of $8,484.13 in electrical work to assist in completing the preparations for the grand opening of the center for public performances and events this coming June.

Jasen Bronec, DMEA's chief executive officer, explained the association's decision to support GMAEC by saying "As a cooperative, DMEA is guided by the seven cooperative principles. One of the principles that we hold dear is 'concern for community.' We live that principle out by supporting the organizations or events that make our communities special. We are particularly excited to support facilities like the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center. We believe projects like this can become the cornerstone of the community, bring our members together and offer an incredible platform to showcase our area."

"It's a privilege," Bronec continued, "for DMEA to support our communities and the people who live in them. The Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center has received incredible support from the community and we are honored to now join that list of supporters."

"DMEA continues to demonstrate, with its generous donation of money and expertise how a consumer-owned cooperative works to support its own. We are honored to have them join the many supporters who have come forward to help make this dream a reality for Cedaredge and the surrounding communities," said board president Cindy Starr.
