Over 300 members and their families participated in the Co-op’s 70th Annivesary BBQ and prize draws held last Saturday. The Co-op was assisted by many of their suppliers, employees, Board Directors, but mostly by the member/owners for which this event was held. Seven community leaders over seventy years ago started this Co-op, and we currently have approximately 800 active members. This Member Appreciation Day and more will continue to inform our community of the benefits of Co-op ownership. New members are always welcome, and $10 buys you a share of the ownership in this local success story.
