Hello Co-op Member Owners (who now number over 200!!) and Supporters
Oshkosh is known as Event City – and we hope you are out and about enjoying all Oshkosh has to offer! We have a number of dates for you to know about.
The first one is a SAVE THE DATEfor our Co-opalooza– this music event member drive is happening, Saturday October 3(afternoon/evening) at the Algoma Club. We’ve got several bands confirmed, including the DEAD HORSES, who have been big Co-op supporters from the beginning. If you are a member, consider coming and bringing a friend to sign up and join the Co-op!
Come see us at the Oshkosh Summer Farmers Market – we will be there August 1 and 22; September 12;and October 3 and 24. We always have membership brochures to share for sign up on the spot. Consider inviting a friend who wants to join the Co-op to come to the Market and meet up with us there! (Our booth is in front of Folklore, on the North end of the Market near Parkway Ave.)
Lastly, our Second Annual Meeting was held on June 24, 2015 at Menominee Park. It was attended by a small yet mighty crew. There was a great Q&A session as well as a yard sign give away. We even had a new household join our Co-op that night! We welcomed our new board members, Cynthia Thorpe and Linda Windhausen and confirmed the election of three more currently serving board members who were re-elected, Brenna Root, Brenda Haines, and Kelly Matthews. In our board meeting on July 8, 2015 we elected officers and they are:
President: Kelly Matthews Vice President: Stephanie Gyldenvand
Treasurer: Lawrence Stahowiak Secretary: Brenna Root
Remember, we need your help to keep this momentum going and to keep growing our membership! Host a house party or summer BBQ and invite a board member to answer questions about the Co-op and sign up members! The weather’s perfect and who doesn’t like a get-together?
If every current member recruited two new members and those new members each got two more, we’d meet our membership goal to open. It’s really that simple!
We’ll see you around town and at the Farmers Market!
