  • Talquin ribbon cutting on new center

    We are proud to officially announce the opening of Talquin’s new Crawfordville Operations Center. The 14,480 square foot office area (2,690 square feet) and Warehouse/Covered Area (12,155 square feet) facility is located adjacent to the Crawfordville Member Service Office and is the new home of the operations personnel that used to report to our south Tallahassee location on Crossway Road. The new center will assist Talquin with more efficient operations and help improve reliability for the expanding utility systems in the Wakulla County service territory.

    Thank you to all our Chamber members who attended the Wakulla Senior Center’s Christmas in July fundraising event.
    It was also great to see a number of you turn out for Talquin Electric’s new facility ribbon cutting.
    The beautiful new buildings are a great addition to the corner of Trice and Wakulla Arran, especially with the sidewalks!

    In June, Wakulla slides into summertime. The calendar says summer starts June 21 but here on the northern bend of Gulf Coast we know summer started weeks ago – when the thermometer started reading in the high 90s and the yellow flies started biting.
