From Your Board: October 2018 - Election results

This year's annual Meeting of Owners took place on Friday, September 21st, 6:00-8:00 pm in Common Ground’s “backyard” in Lincoln Square Mall. It was an evening of good food and conversation, with approximately 70 Co-op owners, staff and producers in attendance. Participants enjoyed a variety of delicious snacks from the store, including house-made cookies, brownies, and hummus, and sipped local cider and tasted wine from the Co-Op’s wine selection. The business portion of the meeting included updates from the Board and from General Manager Gary Taylor.
