MEMBER SERVICES Q&A: 2016 truck giveaway


(Sarah Beal photo) This 2007 Chevrolet C1500 is being retired from Bluebonnet’s fleet, and any member who votes in the 2016 Board of Directors election — either in person at the Annual Meeting on May 10 in Giddings or by proxy — will be entered in a drawing to win.

Q: I heard that Bluebonnet is giving away a used truck in May. Can you tell me more about this? Where does the truck come from, and how do I qualify to win? 
A: Indeed! This is the fourth year we have retired one of our fleet trucks and given it away to one lucky co-op member. This year, we are giving away a 2007 Chevrolet C1500 extended cab 4x2 pickup with about 160,000 miles. To qualify to win, you must vote in the 2016 Board of Directors election - either in person at the Annual Meeting on May 10 in Giddings or by proxy. 
Bluebonnet encourages all members to attend the Annual Meeting. It’s a great opportunity to meet co-op leadership, vote to fill seats on the Board of Directors and hear a State-of-the-Cooperative report. But if you can’t make it, be sure to vote by proxy. It’s one way to make sure your voice is heard, and you will automatically be entered in the truck drawing. The drawing will be the day after the Annual Meeting. 
If you’ve never voted by proxy, it’s easy. Complete the proxy form that was mailed to you in March and return it by mail in the postagepaid envelope or drop it off at any of Bluebonnet’s member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart or Manor. If you misplaced the proxy form, stop by a member service center to pick one up or call 800-842-7708 and ask a representative to mail one to you. Proxies must be hand-delivered to a member service center by 5:30 p.m. May 3, 2016, or postmarked by May 3, 2016. 
Members who attend the Annual Meeting also will be eligible to win one of dozens of door prizes ranging from gift cards to an iPad to a riding lawn mower. These prizes will be given away in a drawing during the meeting. Vendors who do business with Bluebonnet donated money to purchase the door prizes.
