|Open Tuesday, June 1We hope that you had a good Memorial Day. The Co-op will be open regular hours on Tuesday June 1.|
Mural Painting ProjectWe held our first mural painting session this past Sunday, May 30th at the new building. It was a lot of fun and we hope that more of you can join us this coming Sunday, June 6th from 11:00-2:00pm to continue work on the murals. As we shared in a member update email, Lynn Miller, a local mural artist and Co-op manager, is holding sessions open to all Co-op members to paint 2-3 large murals that will be displayed on the walls of the new co-op building. Participants are welcome to come and go as their time allows. The address is 137 S. Main St, Six Mile, SC (the old Masters Electrical building) . For more information, please contact Lynn Miller.
We are making progress on preparing the new location and still hope to move by the end of June, but whether we can move by then will depend on how much volunteer assistance we receive.
We will continue holding work days, mostly on Saturdays between 10:00am-2:00pm, between now and whenever we do move and are in need of volunteer assistance. If you would like to help, please contact Theresa Pizzuto, Interim General Manager at email@example.com.
We will share updates as soon as we have more information. In the meantime the Co-op is operating as usual.
