Do you have a couple hours free tomorrow to help with this To-Do list?  We welcome you to the Co-op for Work Day Wednesday, Oct. 21, 1-5pm. It's fun, no pressure.

  • final ceiling tile in food prep area w/security eye installed in it
  • Clean refrigerator cooler & racks
  • Wash retail area floors
  • Clean produce bin

  • Inventory product from Stone Woman Herbals

  • haul shelving units to basement
  • other?

The Co-op kitchen remodel is done! WOO HOO! We still have shelves to put back under the counter and some little finishing things but floor tiling is done, sinks are in and plumbed (you should have seen Board members last night at the meeting, turning the water on and off, playing like it was a gift opening!

Food Inspector scheduled for next Wed, Oct. 28, 9:30am.  This WILL (we hope) result in our food license.  Think good thoughts! 

Still planning to open the Co-op a few days a week, starting Friday, Nov. 13, 10am-6pm. (we're making the 13th a GOOD omen!). Co-op Member-Owners, we welcome with open arms your time and skills volunteering in the store. A little or a lot - it all makes a BIG difference.
