New Public Water Cooler

Hi Folks,

We wanted to let you know that we just installed a public water dispenser as we swing into summer. I don’t know about you but I try not to buy bottled water so I think this will be a great addition to the Co-Op. It also does hot water so that means no more waiting for you to brew a cup of tea, just come on in and start a brew (nice timing to go with the bulk teas). It is an energy efficient model(it shuts itself off at night and restarts in the morning) with stainless steel tanks for the water. So if you are driving through Brooks and need to fill up your water bottle please keep us in mind!

Brooks Events and Volunteers

Hi Everyone,

We are reaching out to see what kind of interest there is for volunteering as representatives of the MRC for several upcoming events in Brooks in the next 6 months or so. Right now we don’t have any formulated plans so suggestions are welcome as well.  The events we have coming up are as follows;

  1. July 4th Parade (We’ve done a float and had people on the deck serving snacks etc)
  2. Possible birthday party for the Co-op in August
  3. Halloween Trunk or Treat (We did popcorn from the front porch last year)

If you have any suggestions or would be willing to volunteer please e-mail with your ideas. We look forward to hearing from you!

Cinco De Mayo

Hi Folks,

As May 5th approaches we’ve stocked up on supplies for the holiday (I don’t know about you but Mexican is a favorite cuisine). We just received our delivery of Tortillaria Pachanga Tortillas from Portland and we have Backyard Farm Tomatoes, cilantro, avocados and a bunch of other things for your feast. So come on in and check them out!
