UCCC 2011 Co-op Week Event

| Community |

Co-op Week is fast approaching!
October 16-22, with International Credit Union Day on October 20th

The Council would like to invite you all to a lunchtime get-together of cooperators, on

Tuesday, October 18th, from 11am-1pm
Kootenay Country Store Co-op (outside covered area)
295 Baker Street in Nelson

Light snacks will be served, and it will be a great opportunity to socialise with other cooperators.

The Kootenay Co-op has chosen the UCCC as a recipient of its October Community Donation Day, in honour of Co-op Week, in which 1% of the sales for that day (Tuesday, October 18) will be donated to the UCCC. So… tell all of your members and friends to build up their natural foods shopping list for that day, to really support cooperation in our region!

In preparation for this celebration, we’d appreciate your collaboration in the following ways:

a. SUCCESS! Please think about a success enjoyed by your co-op/ credit union this year, and email it to me by Tuesday, October 11th. We plan to celebrate our individual and collective successes! Examples might include your number of new members, volume of sales, contributions to your community, or grants received—help us to spread the word ! A showcase of our successes will take place at 12 Noon.

b. GIVEAWAYS! We’ll be putting together a basket of co-op goodies to give away to one of our lucky attendees—If your co-op/ credit union can contribute something for this basket, please get in touch with UCCC Board member Terry Brennan, terry@kootenaycoopradio.com. The draw will take place shortly before 1 PM.

c. A TABLE!  We’ll have a co-op table set up for the celebration, so please bring your pamphlets, membership application forms, newsletters, etc., to share.

If you have any questions, please get in touch, info@uccc.coop.

We look forward to seeing you there!
