Helping Hands at the Locavore Dinner
By Percy McManus

Owner, Locavore Dinner Co-ordinator
For the second year in a row, the Shakespeare Club in Placerville was the location for the Food Co-op’s fourth annual Locavore Dinner.  Donations from local growers were used to prepare a delicious menu that showcased the results of their hard work in the fields.  In these times of boxed and processed food, often microwaved on top of it, it is a real treat to be able to enjoy dishes that have been lovingly prepared from scratch, using time-honored methods.

Greetings to PNFC members!  My name is Julie Silvey and I am now the Volunteer Coordinator

for the co-op.  Shirley has done a great job of paving the way for me and I hope to continue in that tradition of excellence!  I look forward to meeting many of you over the coming months. At this time we have a small core of about sixty who have shown interest, or already participated, in volunteering at least a small portion of their time to furthering the good of our co-op. It takes many who are willing to give a little to help spruce up or maintain the facilities, represent us in the community, pull off successful events and generally keep things running smoothly....

What's New at the Store

by Melisa Clark, Store Manager

The long days of Summer are ending, school is back in session, harvest season is here and our Co-op continues the rapid growth that we have been experiencing since last October!

On September 1 we will extend our store hours and be open from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm everyday of the week. Too tired to cook after a long day at work or play? Our prepared foods department will be offering a full line of Dinner selections everyday so stop by and pick up a healthy organic meal for you and your family. Did you know that we can cater your events?

What's New  -  From the Board

by Ruthie Loeffelbein
The Co-op’s Third Annual Owner Meeting is coming up on Saturday, October 26.  You are going to be at the Co-op that day, anyway, because it’s our 2nd Store Anniversary Celebration, all day at the market.  The Owner Meeting is from 1 to 2 pm upstairs.  Come meet the current Board, hear the General Manager’s report, learn about your Co-op’s financial condition, and take a peek into the future.

It’s a good time to connect with other owners, and there may be surprises.
