White River Trails District Receives Support from UDWI REMC

The White River Trails District is proud to announce that the Utilities District of Western Indiana (UDWI) REMC is once again a supporter of Scouting in the area!  Our district has a long-standing relationship with UDWI REMC, and the electric cooperative has continued that support in 2017.

At the end of 2016, there were nearly 250 registered Scouts in Greene County, the primary service area of UDWI REMC.  We also welcomed a new Cub Scout Pack to the county in 2016, Cub Scout Pack #499 of Linton.  Great things are happening in Greene County, and we're proud to have the REMC join us in our efforts!
