Annual meeting survey

Thank you to everyone who filled out the annual meeting survey in August and September. Your responses were very helpful in the planning process, and will affect how we run our annual meetings in the future.

Everyone who provided us with contact information was entered in a drawing for co-op gift certificates. Congratulations to Nancy Sogabe-Engelmayer and Bonita Steppa, whose names were drawn at the October 27 annual meeting.

Volunteers, pick up your 2014 wallet cards!

Your 2014 wallet cards can be picked up starting in mid-December. Please fill out a new rolodex card also, and have a floor manager transfer your volunteer credit to the new card.

New newsletter section: member recipes

This issue contains old family recipes sent in by April Alfuth and Chris Meusburger. If you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share with other co-op shoppers, we will print a couple of recipes in each issue of the newsletter. Send them to

Would you like to be a co-op volunteer?

Our co-op can always use more volunteers to stock shelves, dice onions, package dried fruit, clean and organize, provide music, write, paint, repair, and much more. Sign up for a volunteer orientation by the volunteer calendars in the entryway. If you haven’t bought a member share already, do that first. Questions? Send them to
