The Tenkiller Area Community Organization 501(c)(3), also known as TACO, invites everyone to attend the next general membership meeting Aug. 27, at 32247 S. 540 Road next to the Cookson Airpark. A representative from OzarksGo will be making a presentation to everyone. They wish to update the community about the infrastructure in this area in preparation for providing internet and television services. Ozarks will be catering the dinner that night, so no potluck dinner from the members. To assist them on how many will be attending, leave your name and how many are attending before Aug. 19 to Tacocookson@gmail.com or send a private message to Taco Cookson on Facebook. Also, look later for a Facebook event page that you may sign up through. The dinner will be just after 6 p.m. Ozarks presentation will be first on the agenda at 7 p.m.
The TACO group gives a special thanks to all the hard-working volunteers and businesses that once again made the 44th annual Cookson Jubilee a success June 14-15.
Membership dues for 2020 may also be paid at this time. The volunteers continue to reach out to better the Lake Tenkiller area. The Autumn Benefit Sale is tentatively scheduled for Labor Day weekend.

TACO members and volunteers will continue to reach out this fall in several other ways.
