Special meeting

We will hold a special meeting on Sunday, June 9, 2013, at 2:30 PM, to vote on an amendment we wish to make to our co-op's by-laws.

The amendment is to officially declare Wooster Natural Foods to be a political free zone.
The amendment reads:

Wooster Natural Foods is a political free zone. 

Shoppers at our store cannot be confronted with our personal political opinions in any form, for or against candidates or organizations.  Opinions about natural foods and natural healing are, of course, not part of this rule.

The Council will decide what is offensive political content, if this comes into dispute on the staff."

If the amendment receives a 51% or more majority vote, this amendment will be placed under Article Four, Duties of Council Members, in Section 4.01 - Management of Business.

If you are a member in good standing of Wooster Natural Foods co-operative, you can cast one vote per member household,  as with all of our voting procedures.
This meeting will come at the end of our regularly scheduled Council meeting, which itself begins at 2 PM.  Please come at 2:30 for the meeting about this amendment to the by-laws.

Thank you.

 The Council meets on the third Sunday of each month at 2 PM, and we are strictly an advisory group for the staff. New Council applicants will be voted on at this Annual Meeting, with one vote per member household, among those present at the meeting.

 If you are interested in applying for a position on the Council, please email me at, and I will email you a small form to fill out and return to me. Only those who have filled out these forms can be considered for Council election at the Annual Meeting.
