We had a good turnout at the general membership meeting last Thursday at Gilbert Lodge on Twin Lakes. A brief recap of the meeting: our newest board members are Karen Howie and Neill Varner. Board members Rebecca Teahen and Sean Burns ran for third terms and won. The ballot proposal to allow patronage refunds to members passed. We raffled off some fun prizes. Steve Nance, Oryana general manager gave his state of the co-op address. Board president Craig Mulder talked board business. And everyone enjoyed a wonderful feast prepared by Chef Michael and his awesome kitchen staff. So for those of you who missed it, here are photos of our fun annual event:
