 Saturday, October 28   Annual Meeting and Coop Work Party 

Work Day 10am-3pm
Lunch and Annual Meeting 12:30pm

We'll start our Work Day at 10am, then break for lunch and our Annual Meeting at 12:30pm, then burn off some more calories working until 3pm. Chili and Cornbread will be served for lunch. Everyone is welcome for any and all of this.

There are many jobs to be done -- some skilled, some unskilled. 

The following list includes tasks that need to be completed as soon as possible:
• Finish covering the beam between aisles 2 & 3. Please have some carpentry skills and tools!
• Vacuum bugs, webs, etc. from windows, walls, ceilings, corners, and other pesky places. We provide the vacuum cleaner.
• Windows, outside--- wash, remove screens, put up storms. Please feel comfortable working on a ladder.
• Mop and oil floor. Please bring your favorite mop! This will need to be done after closing on Saturday and/or Sunday. This can be done by a small group.
• Repair or replace outside handrail. This very important task also requires tools and skills -- Without the assistance of sturdy handrails, many of our loyal members and customers would be unable to climb the stairs.
• Vacuum barn and sweep cobwebs.
• Weed whip around barn and in back of Coop.

These can be done on your own, or with some guidance from staff. If you'd like to earn some volunteer hours and help the Coop, please contact Andrea:, to make arrangements.
