Two New Items and Updates for Next Week

Hi Folks,

We just wanted to let you know that the Co-Op will be closed this coming Thursday for the holiday but will be open regular hours the other days of the week. That means we’ll be here until 6:00pm the night before the holiday so you can get any last minute needs. Also, we’ve got two new items that fit right in with this coming week. Everyone have a safe and happy holiday!

  1. Organic Cranberries from Crown of Maine (We tried to get them from our usual farm but they suffered a crop failure this year….)
  2. Cameron Clan Maple Kettle Corn (GF, Soy Free, Non-GMO)(Member requested)(Wiscasset)

Annual Forum and Potluck Round-up

Hi Everyone,

We just wanted to pop a quick note out to thank everyone that took the time out of their busy schedules to join us for last nights forum and potluck. Good food was had as well as some great discussions. For everyone that was unable to attend please reach out to our board members (results will be announced shortly) or come in to the Co-Op and let us know how you think we’re doing and ways you think we can improve. We need your input and support to move forward!

Annual Forum and Pot Luck Documents

Hi Everyone,

We apologize for the delay on getting these out but I’m sure you understand how crazy the last week was. We were hoping to get it out then but due to the power outage and recovery from that we didn’t have a chance to work on. Please find the links below for the Annual Report and Bylaw changes the board is recommending. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these documents please don’t hesitate to stop in, talk to a board member or e-mail marshriverordering@gmail.com. We want/need to hear your comments. There is also space on page 5 if you want to write in comments. We will also have copies of the documents and financials available in the store by Wednesday afternoon. We look forward to hearing from you and we hope to see you this coming Sunday at 4:30pm for the Potluck and Forum!

A Message from the board:

Of 9 possible board seats we have five board members who will be continuing on. One of these members is unable to attend meetings so suggested she step down, but would stay on in a primarily advisory position, if we couldn’t find someone who is able to engage more fully. We currently have one candidate on the slate.

That leaves three, really four seats open. Please join the board through standing for a seat or consider appointment to an interim seat if not able to stand at the moment.
