Congratulations to Elnora Tompkins who received the 2019 Distinguished Service Award from the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC) during its 75th Annual Meeting in Williamsburg last month.

A longtime teacher and guidance counselor at A.T. Johnson School in Montross, Mrs. Tompkins served for 32 years on the Northern Neck Electric Cooperative board of directors, including 26 years as secretary-treasurer.

In addition to her co-op service, Mrs. Tompkins, a graduate of Virginia State University, has chaired the board of directors of Rappahannock Community College and the VMDAEC's Communications and Public Relations Committee. She also served on the @wESTWestmoreland County Public Schools Board and her local American Cancer Society chapter, among other civic contributions.

Several of Mrs. Tompkins’ relatives, colleagues and former students (including Delegate Margaret Bevans Ransone) are in this video that was shown during the award ceremony.

In the August issue of Cooperative Living, we feature the community of Scottsville in our Crossroads section. We highlight Baines Books & Coffee, a place the Scottsville community comes to not only read books and drink coffee but where groups come to meet and talk and hang out or bring their laptop to work.

There are places like Baines Books & Coffee in a lot of our communities across Virginia. Let us know if you have a spot like this that you like to go in the comments below.

The football season is ramping back up with preseason games already going on. We thought it would be the perfect time to revisit the Commonwealth Kitchen and showcase our tailgating treats column from October 2018.

Our Cooperative Living chef Kara created this video to show us how to make Baked Potato Salad.

For more recipes go to co-opliving.com/food/recipes/ or co-opliving.com/food/commonwealth-kitchen/. You can also submit your favorite recipe and maybe we will include it in an upcoming issue!
