Letter from Evan Toews
Co-op week is here. It’s time for you, our members, to collect your equity cheques once again.
2018 was a good year for our Co-op. With continued support from you, we were able to celebrate many successes along the way, including our contribution of over $304,000 to local non-profit organizations that provide support, assistance, development, growth and learning to all of us. This is something that sets us apart and something that we are proud of.
Being a Co-op is different. We have the opportunity to support our community in nearly every way imaginable. To keep our profits here, at home. To build, assist, grow, and develop the place we live, work and play together as friends and family. This is what makes us different. This is what makes the Co-op way a better way. We are set apart by our values, by our commitment to the communities and by keeping our profits right here where they belong. In 2018, our profits shared to our members totalled $4,370,921. Of this $2,518,152 will be paid back to members in cash this month. This is only possible because of your support and your belief in our Co-op.
We wish to continue to gain your trust and to develop local partnerships that will enhance our lives in every community we serve. Thank you for your ongoing support, your encouragement, as well as the feedback that you as members provide. Our goal is to provide quality product at the best service. After all, you’re at home here!
