The Amherst Community Co-op would like to invite you and yours to an afternoon of fun, food, and fellowship on Saturday, September 20 from 1:00 to 4:00 at Groff Park in South Amherst.
The event will be an opportunity for us to talk about the progress being made in planning the market, including upcoming consulting work by Cooperative Development Services (CDS). The event will also be a chance for current and future members to get to know each other and share our hopes and dreams about Amherst’s first full-service grocery store in many years.
All co-op members and their families are invited, and we hope you’ll bring along friends who are interested in joining us.
We’ll be prepared to sign up new co-op members right there in the park.
Everyone who joins the co-op at the event will receive a beautiful, locally-made (in New Hampshire) Amherst Community Co-op canvas tote bag! And if you’re not ready to join up, or if you already have a bag and just want another, bags will be on sale for $15 each (all proceeds used for the co-op after covering costs).
If you play an instrument, bring it along! Be sure to bring frisbees, footballs, badminton sets, Nerf balls, whatever you do for fun in the park!
The event is a pot-luck, so please bring either a salad, main dish, side dish, or dessert sufficient for everyone in your party. Please also include a note card with the ingredients and allergy information for your dish. The Amherst Community Co-op Steering Committee will provide beverages as well as (reusable!) plates, cups, and utensils.
Please RSVP, and let us know in the comments below generally what you'll be bringing.
