UPDATE FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 19

Announcements 
Relocation Update
We sent a separate email with some updates about our relocation plan.  As we shared, we have found a suitable commercial rental property in downtown Six Mile and while the sale has not yet been finalized, we are tentatively planning to move by the end of May. 

We will be holding work days, mostly on Saturdays, between now and whenever we do move and will need volunteer assistance. If you would like to help, please contact Theresa Pizzuto, Interim General Manager at theresa.pizzuto@gmail.com.

We will share updates as soon as we have more information. In the meantime the Co-op is operating as usual.
