For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping member-owners informed about their co-op, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
Back in July 1967, readers saw a patriotic presentation of the colors on the cover in celebration of Independence Day, learned that co-ops were assisting electrification efforts in South Vietnam and boosted their safety knowledge with tips for building farm pond rescue stations.
While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since our first issue in 1958, our mission to entertain, educate and inform our readers has not. Here’s a glimpse of what members 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire July 1967 edition below.1967-161
