This photo is taken from my hometown in NW Pennsylvania. My great-grandparents owned land across the road from where this historic marker is located. I grew up on the dairy farm they created with my grandparents. The lights that REA poles powered helped me read at night as a young girl. Today, this photo reminds me of the source of my passion to lead my project (Lita) to be the “REA of Tech”. Co-ops are in my DNA and this history illuminates my path.
