Last night we held our Annual Meeting where we caught everyone up on the latest happenings at the CoOp and elected new board members. Thank you to all of you who attended! It was a very nice chance to see one another and get caught up.
Returning board members Pierre Schierbeek and Danielle Cenci were both re-elected to another 3 year term. We also voted in two new members to the Board; Michele Giordano and Betsy Meerman. Although they are both new to the Board of Directors, neither are strangers to the CoOp. Betsy is part owner of Grassfields Cheese, who have been producers at the CoOp for years. She will be a very valuable addition to the board as another Producer, whose insights and opinions are very helpful! Michele Giordano has been a superstar volunteer who has generously donated her time at almost every pickup night since she joined over a year ago. You have seen her at the checkout table many times, helping you to add your "extra" products. We welcome them both and look forward to working with them this year!
Thanks again to everyone who came out on a stormy Tuesday night to show your support. The CoOp relies on the participation of its members to grow and improve. If you missed the meeting, and have any questions, or would like info on how to join one of our committees, email us at the help email and we will see that you get in touch with the right people.
