We’d like to thank everyone who participate in our Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 28th. At the meeting, members enjoyed a healthy meal of soup & salad provided by our deli, coffee provided by Equal Exchange, and learned more about our new store’s design. Our panel presenters included members of the Relocation & Expansion Team: General Manager Luke Schell, Project Manager Tom Lundgren, Mark Wilkus of Wilkus Architects and Bob Gorksi of Robert Gorski Associates.
We’d especially like to thank our guest speakers Cindy Siewart and Jon Buck from Wood from the Hood who spoke about their company’s role in reclaiming wood from the Twin Cities’ urban forest, including our aisle signage made from reclaimed elm.
L. Peter Erickson and Rhea Sullivan have been re-elected by the membership to serve 3 year terms. The 3rd open seat is yet to be decided. That’s because, for perhaps the first time in our co-op’s history, we have a TIE! The board of directors will announce final election results following a thorough review of our bylaws and policies. Stay tuned for updates.
