The Future of Acres Co-op

On Monday, July 23, the Board of Directors of the Acres Co-op Market will hold a meeting in the Chamber of Commerce conference room in the former Washington Hose firehouse at the entrance to Promenade Hill. The meeting, which is both for members of the co-op and for the community at large, begins at 7 p.m. 

The first part of the meeting will be the co-op's annual membership meeting. The board is expected to propose that the co-op be dissolved and request a vote on that proposal from the fifty or so people who paid $150 in dues to become members of the co-op.

The second part of the meeting will be an open discussion of ways to move forward. In its official announcement of the meeting, the board states: "Our inability to open a store need not stop fresh efforts to address this community's food needs."
