Council Sends Anti-Fracking Letter; Selects CCMA Attendees
By 12th Moon,
On Tuesday, April 12, Council conducted its monthly meeting at The Space @ GreenStar with nine of our thirteen members present. We took a few minutes to honor the passing of a local, and regional, food hero, Gary Redmond. Our thoughts and good wishes go out to his family and the whole Regional Access crew; we will miss his warmth, humor and concern for our local food systems. Thank you, Gary, for being you.

Council Encourages Members to Vote; Proposes Letter Against Hydrofracking
By 12th Moon,
On March 8, we held our first Council meeting in The Space @ GreenStar. "The Space" is the name given to the north end of our building at 700 West Buffalo Street, which has already been used for some musical events, our kids' Halloween party and a photography exhibit, and will be the location of our Annual Spring Membership Meeting this year on April 22, and our first case lot sales, to begin Saturday, April 2.
We moved quickly through most agenda items with time to discuss topics that we have been working on for some time. The monthly report from Interim General Manager (IGM) Brandon Kane showed a respectable growth in sales compared to last year. Brandon informed us of the case lot sales and plans to install a reusable bag drop-off and pick-up area in the entrance to the West-End store. Included in the report was an extensive review of the effects of our newly established FLOWER discount program, which has been a great success. Our Finance Committee approved the IGM's 4th Quarter and Year-End 2010 Financial Report and concluded it was complete and on time.
