Member Appreciation Event Canceled
Events across the nation have been canceled or postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus. Dakota Electric’s Member Appreciation Event is no exception.
Every summer, we host our Member Appreciation Event at the Minnesota Zoo. The event includes free admission and parking and draws more than 6,000 Dakota Electric members and families.
“It is with great sadness we are canceling our 2020 Member Appreciation Event,” said Dakota Electric’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Miller. “While we are disappointed, the health, safety and well-being of our community is our top priority during this pandemic.”
