Time:               2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

It’s that time again for the members of the Yelm Food Coop to get together and review how our store has been doing, where it’s going in our future and to vote for our new Board of Directors!

You’ll have a chance to talk to board members one-on-one and get questions you may have answered.  This Meeting will be an in-store open house to make this a more interactive meeting with input coming from you, our member/owners of the store.

If you are unable to make it to the store during the Meeting hours, you will be able to vote during your regular shopping hours until we reach 100 votes, which may take up to a week. 

Also, if you are a paid up member*, you’ll be eligible to vote for three new Directors who are standing for election:

Jeevan Anandasakaran

Michael Axe

Valentin Fyrst

This is your opportunity to make your voice heard – it’s your Co-op!

We look forward to seeing you there.

The Directors of the Yelm Food Cooperative

* Paid up members: original YFC members and new members who have paid at least the first $25 of the $100 lifetime membership fee. If in doubt as to your status, check with any cashier or staff member at the store before the meeting.

VOTE and be entered into our Raffle and Pick up a bag full of goodies.
