The Beet, January 2014

Meet the 2014 Board of Directors!
Our new (and continuing) board members were voted in during the Annual Owners Meeting in November at Pitchfork Brewery. Congratulations to Sarah Atkins, Jacki Bradham, Suzanna Hambleton, David Larson, Don Kirkpatrick, Dietmar Schlei, and Kathy Tobias. Thank you, directors, for your commitment to growing the Hudson Grocery Cooperative!

More information about the new and continuing directors is on the blog.


Everyone working to start the Hudson Grocery Co-op is volunteering their time and energy.  Over the past two years, volunteers have created marketing materials, posted items to Facebook and Twitter, written the bylaws, passed out information at community events, set up accounting systems, made phone calls to new owners, written newsletters, performed clerical duties, hosted a garage sale fundraiser, encouraged their friends and neighbors to learn about the co-op, and performed tons of other tasks.  Even the board of directors and the committee chairs are volunteer positions.  


As the saying goes, many hands make light work.  Do you have an hour or two a month that you could devote to bringing this co-op to reality?  Contact the board at!
  • Not and owner yet? Joining is easy on the website!  Your one-time investment of $80 brings Hudson one step closer to opening a grocery co-op!
  • Tell your friends and family that the co-op is important to you, and encourage them to become owners.  Talking points and ideas for starting the conversation are available on our website.
  • Volunteer on a committee!
  • Consider giving a co-op ownership as a gift.
  • Remember, organizations and businesses can become owners, too!
