Grant Researcher Wanted

WANTED: Someone who would be willing to spend time doing some research as to what grants may be available for the co-op. This is a new position and anyone interested may contact Clyde Christian or Dennis Winkler on the Board of Directors for further details. The grant writing itself may be done either by the same person who does the research or by another. This is a great position for someone who cannot spend time at the co-op but wants to work for the co-op and earn up to 30% discount. It will also be a very interesting, fulfilling, and challenging position for the right someone.
