From the Board
At our August 29th meeting, your Co-op board confirmed Regina Grosby to the position of Store Manager. Regina is a long time employee with a wide ranging knowledge of store operations, and a bright outlook. We believe that Regina is the right person to move the co-op forward at this time. Already, staff and customers have experienced improved relations, a friendlier environment and better service. Regina has a list of plans and ideas to improve the store, and she is happy to hear your comments and suggestions as well.
Be sure to save the date, Saturday October 29, for our Fifth Anniversary Celebration and Annual Owner Meeting. Planning is underway to make this event festive, informative, and tasty for all who attend. The anniversary celebration will last all day with product sampling and special sale pricing, and at noon the Co-op will provide lunch for owners attending the annual meeting before the 1 PM start of the meeting. In addition to reporting board election results and store financial performance, we will have time for owner input.
We wish to encourage all owners who are financially able to pay up to the $300 full ownership share. We currently have almost $150,000 in share capital outstanding, as only forty-five percent of our owner/members are fully paid. Expediting payment of half of this sum in the next few months would allow us to make capital improvement to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of the Co-op.
