It’s our Annual Owners Meeting, and this year is a can’t-miss event!! We plan to reach #800 Owners by the meeting and begin our final countdown to 900, when we can choose our site, launch our capital campaign, and build our community owned grocery store!!
The Owners Meeting will include updates on our progress, trajectory, and projected impact in the community. We’ll also elect several new members to the Co-op Board of Directors, and we’ll have great treats from our local sponsors (including The Bake Shoppe, Haute Coffee, and more!).
Owners, let’s make it a celebration! HELP US REACH #800 BY SENDING AN E-MAIL AND SHARING YOUR CO-OP PASSION WITH FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS!! It’s super easy, and it works!
This meeting is for Co-op Owners. STILL NOT AN OWNER? IT’S TIME!! JOIN ONLINE TODAY and help bring a locally sourced, community owned grocery store to Metro West!: http://assabetvillage.coop/join-online/
Join us for our next Co-op Info Session at Sudbury Coffee Works on Saturday, November 11, from 8-10:30am! Purchase a delicious cup of coffee (you can watch Dan hand-roast your beans!). Then mosey over to our table to learn all about our locally sourced, community owned grocery store coming to Metro West!
What could be better than coffee with the Co-op? And Co-op Owners, gather some non-Owner friends for a morning coffee and help us reach our 900-Owner goal. We’ll see you at the coffee shop!
We’re sharing our Co-op with the Social Action Committee at Congregation Beth Elohim in Acton! From reducing the carbon footprint of the food we eat to supporting struggling small farms, paying living wages, and donating to charity, food co-ops are making huge strides toward “tikkun olam” – healing the world.
Looking forward to our visit to CBE!
