FCCM Minutes for July 9, 2009
Present were Rob Leach, Mary Christensen, Lela Ryterski, Rich Seifert and Sharon Alden.
The June 25th minutes were read and approved.
Lela had gotten a name of a lawyer who does co-op law, Dave Burglen. Rob will contact him.
Mary is trying to make contact with Sunshine Food.
COMMUNICATIONS Committee: We’ve got the flyers and posters for membership ads. We’re working on a T-shirt design.
It would cost $360 to put inserts into 4,000 Daily News-Miners to announce the Annual Meeting. We can target zones.
Mary contacted Calypso Farm about them being board members. They gave us several other possible candidates for us to contact. They’re having an open house on July 19th from 12-4pm. They invited us to put our booth up there. We’re planning on it.
POWER POINT PRESENTATION: Cora is out of town and nothing has been done so far.
STORE DESIGN: Rob says he can do a floor design to be ready for the Annual Meeting. He needs to connect with Jerry Wacker about how much space for what products. There might be other architects in town that might be willing to assist. Rob thinks it would cost about $200,000 in renovations. Lela will research other co-ops for possible layout designs.
DELTA FARM TOUR: Rob, Shaun, and Lela are planning to go.
TREASURER’s report: Sharon reported $84,00.00 in the bank so far.
The other committees had nothing new to report. Lela suggested the meetings be held somewhere else, like the library. We can discuss that at the next meeting.
NEXT COMMUNICATIONS MEETING will be at Mary’s on Tuesday, July 21st, at 6:30p.m.
NEXT BOARD MEETING will be at the Foodland site on Thursday, July 16th at 6:00p.m.
Both meetings are open to interested persons.
