Mid-Month Update – February 2014

Save the Date! Founders Night

This is our annual meeting called for in our by-laws, and what better way to get people to attend a meeting than to throw a party? The confirmed date is Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 6-9 pm. Edward and Emily McFalls have graciously agreed to host. They live at 205 E. Spring St. in Fuquay-Varina. Highlights will include: Silent auction, live music, share certificate distribution and GREAT, LOCAL FOOD & DRINK.

All members are invited, and please bring a friend (or two) who may be interested in joining the co-op. We gained numerous members at last year’s Founders Night, so the challenge is on! We’ll put out the volunteer call for various duties as time draws nearer and our party planning committee finalizes the details.

Our member total is 335….inching closer to our next Phase II goal of 450 members. When we reach 450 members, we kick off the capital campaign. When we kick off the capital campaign, we WILL have a location to base capital projections/needs on. This process may seem tedious, but it is important for securing a firm foundation. A firm foundation ensures success for the business and its owners (the members!) SO recruit your friends; recruit your neighbors, recruit your neighbors’ friends. Let’s build a co-op!
