We are starting to plan for our upcoming Annual Meeting and we are reaching out to our community to see if we can recruit some new board members/volunteers to help with the day to day operations and steering of the Co-op!
The board is currently performing all of it’s duties through email or through a once monthly Zoom meeting (there are other committee meetings throughout the month) so if you have any interest and you’d like to check out a board meeting our next one is scheduled for October 12th at 6:30pm. If you’d like to attend please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an invitation or if you have any questions. Follow the link below if you’d like to see what our board requirements are.
We’d love to have some new faces in our meetings. We have some very dedicated folks on our board right now but we are always looking for ways to improve our processes and the state of the Co-op. We’d also like to take this opportunity to offer our gratitude to our current and former board members for their hard work and time which has made it possible for this little Co-op in Brooks to continue to grow!
Just popping out a quick note that we got our first batch of pumpkins for this year (It’s a bit early but I think everything is this year). These were grown using organic practices by one of our members children!
It’s time for a new item list as well as we are looking for a few things for the Co-op so we figured we’d put them out to the universe;
We are looking for someone to meet one of our deliveries at the Belfast Co-op Parking lot on Fridays between 9:30am-10am typically. Our regular volunteer is unable to do it after the end of the month so we thought we’d ask.
We are also looking for a new vacuum cleaner and stereo (or cd player only) for the Co-op. Both of ours have gotten to the point where they are giving us trouble so if anyone has any used ones they are willing to offload we would greatly appreciate it.
We wanted to let you know that we’ve received a missive from Night Moves that they will no longer be delivering to our location for the foreseeable future until they can increase capacity. This is truly unfortunate but we understand the difficulties of running a small business so we wish them the best and we hope to see them again in the near future. In light of this change we’d love to hear from folks about any other bakeries you think we should reach out to, please let us know in the comments!
We hope you are surviving this hot weather as best you can. It’s been brutal out there the last few days.
First up we are looking for someone that might potentially be will to take a road trip to the Lewiston/Auburn area at some point. We’ve located a refrigerated bakery case and before we inquire if it is still available we wanted to see if anyone would be willing to make the trip? Would probably need a truck and we would of course pay for gas/wear and tear. Please email email@example.com if you might be willing to make the run!
Long overdue again is our new items list!
