More than 30 Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative members in January reported recent attempted phone scams by people claiming to represent Bluebonnet. The fraudulent callers have told co-op members that their power will be disconnected unless they make a payment immediately over the phone.
Carmine Hall, a longtime community gathering spot in Fayette County, is renovating its cramped, outdated women’s restroom thanks to a $6,000 grant from Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative and the Lower Colorado River Authority.
The Community Development Partnership Program grant, paired with matching funds of $6,010, will pay for three new restroom stalls, including one that’s handicapped-accessible, new flooring and fixtures, and a new vanity and inset sinks.
In April, Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative honored 60 high school seniors who will each receive a $2,500 scholarship.
The students are pursuing an associate or bachelor’s degree or a trade or technical certificate. Some of their fields of study include welding, nursing, biomedical science and business. In the past five years, Bluebonnet has given out $700,000 in scholarships to students from across the cooperative’s service area.
