GRASSROOTS ACTION IS POWERFUL! is a blog dedicated to American independently-owned, Member-Owned & operated, community food co-ops, their Member-Owners and families.
YIKES! I meant to post this yesterday and got heavily involved in my garden and planting! So, here is a last minute reminder!
Come to the quarterly Membership Meeting – and Annual Budget Vote – of the Honest Weight Food Co-op tonight, Monday, June 27, 2016 at FUUSA, First Unitarian Church, 405 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY: dessert potluck at 5:30pm, Membership Meeting from 6:00-8:30pm. (Member-Owners, see Meeting Announcement and Budget Presentation.)
Please print the Budget Presentation Sheets and READ THEM!!! and bring them with you. And please also read this excellent summary by Jessica Rae, entitled Approve the Budget on June 27th!
Don’t read my most recent blogpost, GRASSROOTS ACTION: HWFC Forewarned – Reducing Overhead Critical, here …because you will still be reading an hour later. Skip down to the bottom, to this heading, and read:
IS HWFC OUT OF THE WOODS YET?
Long story short? No, we are not “out of the woods.” After attending one of the excellent Budget Presentations this week, by our acting GM, Jim Guzewich, I plan to vote YES on reducing the weekly Member-Owner & employee benefit/discount of 24% down to 20% (it does not at all make me happy; it is, however, necessary).
I also plan to vote YES on the budget. Our Board, our Treasurer, our Finance Committee and our Acting GM and all his staff all did an excellent job preparing it!
See you tonight at the Dessert Potluck at 5:30PM at FUUSA! (not St. Sophia‘s this time!)
