Are you a Wild Oats Market member-owner? Then we hope that you can join us on Tuesday, October 29 for our annual member-owner meeting, which takes place from 7-9 pm at St. John’s Church, 35 Park Street, in Williamstown. We will begin the meeting with time to socialize and enjoy some delicious foods prepared by Wild Oats Market, including seasonal desserts like fruit pies and cobbler; seasonal treats like local heirloom apples; locally produced artisan cheeses, and more. There will be hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages and from 7-8 pm there will be a wine tasting featuring some reds and whites that we think you will like for fall and early winter.
Our business meeting will begin around 7 pm with the Board President’s report followed by the General Manager’s report, which will include the yearly financial report. The meeting will conclude with a lively panel discussion among four local farmers: John Primmer of Wildstone Farm; Lisa MacDougall of Mighty Food Farm; Morgan Hartman of Black Queen Angus; and Suzy Konecky of Cricket Creek Farm. The focus of the panel will be on The Business of Sustainable Farming; and it will be moderated by Brent Wasser, Sustainable Food & Agriculture Program Manager for the Zilka Center for Environmental Initiatives at Williams College.
Member-owners will also vote for two new board members at the annual meeting. We hope that many of our members will turn out for this important yearly meeting.
