About 500 people turned out for Hardy’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Members on Friday, October 5, at the East Hardy High School gymnasium, where they enjoyed a pork barbecue meal and saw three directors elected to serve new terms.
The three directors were re-elected by acclamation. Serving new three-year terms will be Ervin Wilkins Jr. of Baker, for Lost River serving area 4; Phyllis Cook of Moorefield, for South Fork serving area 2; and Harold Michael of Moorefield, for Moorefield serving area 1. All were unopposed in their bids for re-election.
Members were treated to a preview of the upcoming Hardy OneNet high-definition digital television service. A live TV feed from WHSV-TV3, traveling over Hardy’s network, was played in the EHHS cafeteria as members entered and waited for their meal. Hardy employees also were on hand to show a display of OneNet equipment and to answer any questions from members about the service, which also will include much faster Internet speeds and digital telephone.
We at Hardy sincerely appreciate the hard work of the East Hardy High Band Boosters and FFA, who prepared and served the meal. We also thank former EHHS Band Director Bob Thompson, now at East Hardy Early Middle School, for his assistance.
