As we first told you on our statewide radio show, Montana Talks, linemen with electric cooperatives from across Montana will soon be heading out for a mission in South America.

Ryan Hall with the Montana Electric Cooperatives' Association (MECA) will be joining us on Tuesday's show to talk about the trip, as we broadcast LIVE from MECA's annual convention in Great Falls.

Check out some of their great pics from last week in Bolivia on the MECA Facebook page.

Here's a note they shared on October 2nd:

Ravalli Electric Co-op‘s Kyle Kearns and MECA’s Ryan Hall toured Villa Cotoca, Bolivia, today in preparation for an NRECA International electrification project next year. They were greeted by school children who have no lights in school and a family hoping to get a refrigerator.
