Thank you to the 90+ people who attended the Monadnock Food Co-op’s Annual Meeting & Celebration on October 13, 2012 in Keene. After a building tour at Railroad Square, people gathered at Heberton Hall to enjoy ice cream while member-owners voted for the Board of Directors. Attendees learned about the co-op’s progress and our exciting plans for opening in April 2013.
Congratulations to our elected (and re-elected) Board of Directors: Joe Marks, Bob Oberlander and Len Weldon.
We also want to offer big thank yous to Stonewall Farm, for providing us with their made-on-the-farm ice cream, Erbin Crowell and Bonnie Hudspeth from the Neighboring Food Co-op Association for inspiring us about the co-operative economy and all the volunteers who helped make this event a success: Susan Ashworth, Pam Bielunis, Amy Bodwell, Jaime Contois, Cheryl Fairbanks, Bonnie Hudspeth, Deb O’Meara, Carol Packwood, Jay Smeltz, Peg Smeltz and Mary Veerkamp.
One more important thank you goes to the Keene Public Library, for offering us an affordable downtown-based venue to hold our meeting at. They also provided us access to one of their very helpful staff members to help with last minute requests.
