HOW ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE SEASON?
It is officially fall, so I would say all things pumpkin! Between the pumpkins, gourds and squash, the pumpkin treats, and pumpkin beer, I feel ready for fall!
WHY DO YOU SERVE ON THE BOARD?
I serve on the board as an opportunity to serve the community. Local small businesses are vital to our community and as the co-op supports these, I believe it to be very important that we support the co-op in its growth and success. The initiatives of being welcoming and making local, fresh food accessible to more members of our community will only help us all thrive.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO FIRST SHOPPING AT THE CO-OP?
My husband, Mario and I both enjoy cooking. When we moved to the Valley six years ago, we were looking for lamb to make a pasta dish. We became members of the co-op at the very first visit as it seemed to have all our regularly purchased items. We’ve come to love the bulk selection, meat and produce, and beer options.
