July 2014 Newsletter

It has been a VERY busy summer for Food Shed Co-op so far! Here are a few of the things that we’ve been up to:

parade.JPG-- Getting out in the community to spread the word about Food Shed Co-op. We were at Nippersink Music Festival and in the Crystal Lake Independence Day Parade earlier this month and are at the McHenry Farmer’s Market every Thursday all season long.


-- Working with a designer to develop our fabulous new logo. We’ll have t-shirts with the logo for sale at the County Fair!

-- Preparing for our first official Ownership drive - we can’t open a store without Owners!

-- Filling up a summer events calendar. Our next upcoming events are:

7/22 July Info and Updates Webinar – Join us to catch up on all the latest info and have a chance to ask questions. Register at: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/392100481

Did you know? We have over 50 Founding Owners to date! We're off to a good start, but we need you to join us! Without Owners, we can’t open the store. Your participation is vital to this effort.

FAQ: Owners are NOT REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER any time now or in the future, just patronize the store. However, you are welcome to volunteer if you choose to. Volunteering is 100% optional.

The first official Food Shed Co-op Ownership drive kicks off soon - keep an eye on the website, Facebook, Twitter and your inbox for details. 

In the meantime, you can help out by becoming a Founding Owner (if you aren't already!) and by spreading the word.
