Vote & Come Out to OwnerFest
Why Your Vote Matters!
What makes co-ops different than other businesses is that we are here solely to serve the needs of our owners. One of the most important things we ask of our owners is that they participate in the well being of the store. This includes voting in the election for the board of directors.

Get Your Tickets to OwnerFest!
The last day for voting is on our biggest owner social event of the year, OwnerFest! OwnerFest is a celebration of our accomplishments and serves as our annual owners meeting. It will be held on March 19 at The Warehouse at 17th Street in Murphysboro. All owners are invited to attend the Be Happy Social Hour starting at 5 pm with the meeting to follow. At 7 pm there will be a catered dinner.
Tickets are necessary to attend the dinner. Due to increasing event costs tickets will be sold this year for $5 each to help offset the cost of the meal. Pre-event registration participation will be used to calculate the quantity of food needed. Owners are asked to pre-register whenever possible. However, tickets will be sold at the door ($10 each) for those owners who want to come, but are unsure of their schedules.
Food & Entertainment at OwnerFest
Cristaudos will be offering chicken and chorizo (pork) paella with a salad, paella with veggies and tempeh, or you can choose the pulled pork plate with baked beans and slaw from 17th Street BBQ. The Co-op will offer non-alcoholic beverages, coffee and tea, as well as a limited amount of wine or beer. 17th Street will also offer a cash bar. Owners are asked to bring finger foods or wine for the Be Happy Hour or a dessert for after the dinner. Live music will be played. TBA
*Tickets are required for this portion of the evening. Pre-reservation is requested.
