How excited I was to recently receive in the mail my own membership card in the Wirth Cooperative Grocery!
I joined the Coop late last year in a burst of civic enthusiasm, knowing this organization needed to get a certain number of members to move forward and take next steps. I may not be able to participate as fully as some other members can but, well, I can certainly put information and developments with the Coop out upon the internet. So here goes...
Tonight the Coop, a project of the Harrison Neighborhood organization, is having their 6th Annual Meeting. The organization is seeking board members who can make a 2 year commitment, and also somebody with a "financial background." Hearing THAT, I strongly suspect the self-interested scammers who so often infest our Northside neighborhood organizations will be coming out of the woodwork with big smiles and firm handshakes, so I would urge decent and good people to be at the meeting to counteract such pernicious influences.
The meeting is tonight, April 22, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at 503 Irving Ave. N. in the Harrison Park Multi-Purpose room. Childcare will be provided. Bring a dish to share and, if you like, a recipe card so if diners enjoy your dish they can learn to make it, as well.
And check out my new membership card, pictured above! I'm totally going to get that laminated.
