ANNUAL MEETING: 2021, 2022 and Beyond

Thank you to all who made our Annual Meeting a hit.  We met in-person for the first time since 2019.  

The Milk & Honey Ciders outdoor facility was fabulous. More than 100 people attended, lots of young families with kids, plus older folks.  Great potluck food (as usual!).  Zach’s music, both original and popular songs, was superb. 

The salmon, pork, beef, chicken, mushrooms and a Flour & Flower pie Door Prizes were a hit.  

Five new people became members.  And each received a special Steely mug with our logo. 

A big thank you to outgoing Board members Jim Degiovanni, Patty Weishaar and Ray Sjogren.  

Jim and Patty’s long service provided stability, continuity, a hard-work ethic and can-do attitude to our enterprise.  Ray brought new energy, good questioning about our finances at a key time, a consistent commitment on Saturday evenings to keep our store clean and looking bright — and he made our 10th Anniversary last year special by commissioning a Mary Bruno hand letterpress commemorative poster and a Mo Philippi commemorative sticker.  Both are collectibles!

And a new Mo Philippi collectible sticker for 2022 is coming soon. Stay tuned!

General Manager Pia Lopez presented the Annual Report at the meeting.  We vastly improved performance in 2020 compared to 2019.  And 2021 was even better than 2020. We have had steady sales growth in the last two years, and have worked hard to keep expenses in line. We have been able to buy some much-needed equipment and do more promotion and outreach.

Special thanks to newly elected Board members Gary Bechtold, Stacey Titus Rauch, Joe Degiovanni and, student member, Addison Fraze. They come aboard at a key time to make us better in 2022 and beyond. Onward!
