October 23rd is our Annual Meeting!

Please join us at the Keene Courtyard Marriott on Sunday, October 23rd at 4 pm. This year’s Annual Meeting theme is “Impact” and we are very excited to have three speakers addressing how our co-op has and could continue to impact our community. Megan Straughen, Sustainability Coordinator at our co-op will speak about the impacts sustainability projects have had in our store and in the wider community. Aubrey Saxton of Saxy Chef will speak about the impact our co-op has had on her local business and Dorian Gregory, President of River Valley Co-op will speak to the future potential impact of our co-op. River Valley Co-op is about 4 years older than us and has been very successful, yet it has not been without challenges. These will be 10-minute TED-Talk-style presentations. We are excited about this format; it will interesting, informative, and fun!

Please come and enjoy yummy co-op appetizers and free drinks, including beer and Fair Trade wine. The business meeting starts at 4:30 pm.
