What's New at the Store

by Melisa Clark, Store Manager
The Co-op is marching forward with 1000 owners! 

That is an incredible milestone for all of us and to celebrate, the Co-op is throwing a party on Saturday March 15 from 10 am until 4 pm. Every owner will receive 10% off their purchases, free samples, raffle prizes, a chance to win a $100.00 Co-op gift card and if you bring a buddy who joins that day you will both receive a gift bag full of samples, goodies and a $10.00 Co-op gift card. Plus local producers will be giving samples of their goods. Let's celebrate!

Calling All Volunteers!
by Twyla Teitzel
Hello, my name is Twyla and I am the new Volunteer Coordinator for PNFC.

I am so excited to be working with you!

I hope to meet all of you at the 1000 Owner Celebration on March 15, 2014. See the flyer for all the special deals for that day and for further details.  And bring your friends and family. What a fantastic occasion!  
We have some exciting volunteer opportunities coming up, so please contact me if you are interested in volunteering. Remember, for every four hours you volunteer in one month, you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase everyday you shop the Co-op.  And you can bank your hours.  So if you volunteer eight hours in March - you will receive the 10% discount everyday in April and May.

From the Board
By Ruthie Loeffelbein

What a lot of ways there are for you to be involved and supportive of your Co-op!  

These  came out of the Feb. 1 Strategic Planning Day, when 17 owners looked at how far our Co-op has come, and discussed what we want to do in the next few years.

  • You won’t be surprised to hear that the NUMBER-ONE goal is “thriving profitability” by mid-2015.
  • Number two is to increase the Co-op’s visibility in our El Dorado County community.
  • Number three is to move forward in developing education, outreach, and collaboration with our community.
