September Annual General Meeting

Greetings from  the Yelm Food Co op Board of Directors!

It’s time again for the members of the Yelm Food Co op to get together to review how our store is doing and where it’s headed .

On Saturday,  September 28, we will have our Annual General Meeting, in house, at the Yelm Food Co op. From 2pm to 4pm  members will be able to meet and get to know the members of the board, ask questions, and give suggestions. Current Co op members will have the opportunity to vote for board members who are up for re-election.  Afterwards, there will be plenty of samples to try, and as usual, wine tasting!

See you there!

Sincerely,

The Yelm Food Co op Board of Directors

When the fireworks go off, make sure they are in the house, in a calm place with their blankets and whatever else makes them feel safe and secure… We suggest giving your pet either Lazarus Naturals, Restorative Botanicals or Austin & Kat Pet Tincture or Austin & Kat or Treat Me With Love Pet Treats from the morning to start off the calming effect and complete their evening walk no later than 6 pm on the 4th

Valued Yelm Food Coop Members!

If you missed the Annual Member Meeting on Saturday, Sept 23rd, you can still vote for the 2 Directors standing for election this year: Debbie Lusk and Judy Scott. You must be either an original YFC member or be a current new YFC member.

We are required by State law to have a board of directors and by our bylaws to have a minimum of 5. Voting this year will ensure that we meet our requirements – no Board, no Co-op!

These people have a variety of responsibilities among others are ensuring that everything the co-op management does is legal, adheres to the mission statement and is financially sound.

These directors are elected by the members – that be YOU! – on an annual basis depending on their term lengths. This year, for example, only 2 of the 5 Directors are up for election. But, we need them to be legally elected so that we have the 5 minimum required by our bylaws.

The new director team after the voting complete will be:

Carl Zambuto
Diane D’Acuti
Debbie Lusk
Judy Scott
Jeevan Anandasakaran

Ballots are available at the Yelm Food Co-op until October 21st or until we reach a quorum. Ask a cashier to help you.

Thanks.

Your Voice and Your Vote Matters !
