What’s Happening “On Board”

Hello Baker Food Co-op MEMBERS! I hope that you had the opportunity to gain important information for all of our Member-Owners through the Board’s communication presented in last month’s Newsletter, Email and Web page. The “key” word was “members“! That’s you and me…all of us!

You are essential! You belong to a committed group of fellow store owners! Effective communication between yourself and your Board of Directors is “key”.  ALL Member-Owners are vital to the continued operation of the Baker Food Co-op! Stay informed, become involved! One important way to do that is to attend Member-Owner meetings, held every three months.

You are cordially INVITED to ATTEND the upcoming Member-Owner Meeting!

DATE:  Monday, July 29, 2013  
TIME: Please come at 5:30 p.m. We will start eating at 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: Geiser-Pollman Park, under the covered area.
BRING: Yourself and any dish you will enjoy sharing!
ON THE AGENDA: Voting on changes to the By Laws.

Your Board of Directors is working diligently to meet the present challenges and decisions before us and we need your help and involvement. The Board is pursuing the process of purchasing the building we presently occupy. Each one of us has “ownership” in the Baker Food Co-op. Therefore, each one of us is responsible for the successful operation of our store.

Some ideas for you to consider beyond shopping at the Co-op are: Attending member meetings, sharing helpful ideas that contribute to the success of our store, working at the store or working from home… to name just a few of the many opportunities awaiting you! It is amazing how much we can encourage one another by simply extending a helping hand and giving a warm smile!

Major changes are coming to our Cooperative! We need all hands helping. As a valued Member-Owner, YOU really make the difference!

Looking forward to seeing you at the Park next month!

Fran Hart, Member-At-large
