The Annual Meeting for the Olympia Food Cooperative will be held this year on October 17 at the Olympia Community Center, 222 Columbia, in downtown Olympia, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
A lunch buffet will be catered by two wonderful local food truck restaurants: Arepa, offering delicious Latin cuisine from Venezuela, and Nineveh with its unique Assyrian fare.
In addition to annual committee reports from the Board of Directors, we will also be graced with a panel of folks from the Cecosesola Cooperative who will just have arrived in Olympia from Venezuela. They will be getting a warm welcome from our members and at the same time will be accepting questions from the audience about their own excellent cooperative organization.
With the Board Elections moving into full swing, all members who have applied to run for a position on the Olympia Food Co-op Board of Directors will have the opportunity to take the mic and introduce themselves to all of those in attendance.
Children are welcome and will have a space to gather and play during the meeting and we may even have a clown join us!
This meeting is a good chance for members of the Olympia Food Co-op to get the latest news on Co-op business, meet up with old friends, share some scrumptious food, meet Board candidates, ask questions of the current Board, and learn about how the folks in Venezuela manage to run such a huge, successful cooperative business in their country.
Please put this date on your calendar. This is your Co-op. Your participation is what helps to invigorate and enliven it!
