Our Board of Directors meets once every month - Third Thursday 7:30pm - 9:30pm. The first 10-15 minutes are always reserved for Member-owners to participate. As a Member-owner - you are welcome. Do you have questions for the Board? Ideas on how to make the Co-op better? This is your time. Next meeting is Thursday, August 18.
NOTE: Thanks to Board Director Fred Myers, we are now meeting in the lower level of EmNet - just down the street from the Co-op in the Emporium building. Go in the front door and down the stairs on the left. There is another way to get in - with only a few exterior stairs - in the back.
Last Year Purple Porch won the Culinary Arts Award! Once again, we'll be making and selling refreshing slushies at the DTSB Art Beat in downtown South Bend on August 20 - 11am-7pm - in the culinary arts village. Consider volunteering. We'll need some helpers. Please let Greg know if you would be willing to a 1-2 hour shift and the time of day you'd prefer. THANKS. Its always a good time.
