|Relocation UpdateWe had a very productive work day on April 10 cleaning up our new building. We will plan to have another workday Saturday, April 17. We are updating the planning checklist. If you have not yet looked at it, particularly if you are a manager, please look at it and provide feedback. We especially want to say Thank You to everyone who volunteered to help. Review the April 11 email regarding the Co-op work day and relocation plan update here.|
At the moment, our tentative target date for moving is Saturday, May 29. But that move date depends upon many factors including final closing date, lining up moving company assistance, volunteers, etc.
We will share updates as soon as we have more information. In the meantime the Co-op is operating as usual. If you would like to volunteer to assist please contact Theresa Pizzuto or Pete Santora.
