Thank you to all of you who were able to attend the first annual owners meeting! There were nearly 300 people present and we were astonished at the attendance and gratified by all of the support.
As reported in the Board’s Message to the Owners, at the advice of our various consultants, and the voices of our owners, and prospective owners, we have committed to locating the market in downtown Burlington and to play a role in the revitalization of downtown. We believe that doing so will contribute to the success of the market and the realization of the vision. We are currently in the process of evaluating potential viable locations and will soon begin our community investment note program. The Hayden-Harman Foundation has pledged a $100,000 community investment note to anchor our community investment note fundraising.
Caroline Ansbacher unveiled her ‘You + 2 = 2,000’ ownership campaign. If every current owner can sign up two owners, we can quickly reach our necessary ownership goals and get the market up and running.
The Annual Report is now available on the website for further details of the state of the co-op.
Again, thank you for your continued support.
CSM Board President
