This October, the Great River Co-op is joining over 40,000 co-operatives and credit unions across the United States in celebrating Co-op Month, observed nationally since 1964. To celebrate, the Great River Co-op board of directors will be holding an informal listening series of events at locations within the region.
This year’s theme, “Co-ops: By the Community, For the Community,” was chosen by the National Cooperative Business Association to promote how co-operative enterprises enable people to work together to meet their needs and build stronger communities.
Informal Listening Session one will be at the Walpole Town Hall, Saturday, October 19th from 10:00am to noon.
Informal Listening Session two will be at Wunderbar on Sunday, October 27th from 3-5pm.
The purpose of these events is to sit down with members, producers and others who would like to ask questions of the board, or chat about their ideas and vision for the co-op. Watch the Facebook page for updated event times and locations.
Those interested in getting involved are encouraged to contact Steve Fortier at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-903-2602. To learn more about becoming a member-owner of the Great River Co-op, please visit our website.
