Scholarship time 
If you are just now getting started in the scholarship race, you may have found that many deadlines have already passed for a lot of different local and national scholarships. Even so, there are still a lot of good ones that you can apply for, such as the GreyStone supported Walter Harrison Scholarship or the GreyStone Power Foundation Scholarship.

Each year, GreyStone coordinates and reviews entries from local student members for a chance to win either of these scholarships. Deserving students are given this opportunity to further their education with a little less financial stress. 

The Walter Harrison Scholarship awards six $1,000 scholarships. The competition is tough as applicants compete against students submitted by electric cooperatives from all across Georgia. All applications must be received by Jan. 31, 2014.

The GreyStone Power Foundation Scholarship awards five $3,000 scholarships to GreyStone Power members or their children who are either seniors in high school or currently enrolled in college for the fall of 2014. All applications must be received by Apr. 11, 2014.

Specific criteria must be met with each of these scholarship applications. For eligibility requirements or to learn more about the programs, visit or call 770-370-2273.
Holiday Safety
We know we are supposed to inspect the lights for wire damage or shorts before putting them on the tree. We remember that the tree needs to be watered constantly so that it won't dry out. We are even aware that it is not a good idea to put a candle near the tree or anything else flammable. But.... how many times have you caught yourself forgetting to do one of these things?

You may have caught yourself saying, "Oh, the lights just flickered once. They will be all right this season." Or how about, "I'm sure the tree probably needs water, but I will do it tomorrow when I have more time." Are you guilty as charged? We all are at some point and time. This just means we are lucky. We could have easily become one of the many holiday statistics.

Don't chance it this year. Take the right precautions and educate your family on holiday safety. Be sure you know what to do when it comes to the following safety areas:
  • Christmas Tree Safety
  • Candles Safety
  • Cooking Safety
  • Overall Winter Safety

Weather Connection App
Mr. Sun has been hiding from us for quite a while now. With all of the rain we have had there have been multiple flood alerts.   
Don't get caught off guard! With the Touchstone Energy Weather Connection App, you can be audibly notified of a flooding alert in your area!

Weather Connection app is free on iTunes and Google Play; however, to unlock the premium Weather Connection package (valued at $9.99, but free for you) which features the audible alerts, watches and warning map layers and social media streams, you will need to input your GreyStone co-op code (which we will mail to you per your request) after you have downloaded the app.
Simply email [email protected] with your mailing address or call 770-370-2273 (if leaving a message, be sure to leave your mailing address and contact number, speaking slowly and clearly) so that we can mail the code card to you.
No smartphone? No problem! Visit and check out the full-featured live radar system to track weather, detailed forecasts and lightning strikes, and watch storm chasers. You can even see the severe weather outlook in your area or anywhere in the U.S.
