Recent happenings at the Co-op
Our co op has recently concluded our 2013 referendum. Thank you to everyone who participated, your input is vital. An important change to our membership structure has passed. Once implemented, memberships will renew on the anniversary of joining, rather than every August.
Additionally, all seven Board of Director appointments were ratified by membership vote.
As a member of the George Street Co Op, you will receive your 2013 referendum in the mail. There are EIGHT questions. Question 1 deals with membership terms, and the remaining seven are ballot votes for each of the seats on the Board of Directors.
We have some gluten-free treats from the same vegan pastry shop that supplies our fresh-baked muffins. Come sample gluten-free brownies with walnuts, gluten-free key lime raspberry mini-cheesecakes (with a chopped walnut crumb topping) and gluten-free chocolate mini-cheesecakes (with walnuts). The “cheese” is non-dairy. These treats are all vegan.
