In a couple of weeks, Pioneer Co-op will host their annual general meeting which will include a free roast beef supper for the southwest members. 

The event is set for Thursday, April 18 at the Living Sky Casino in Swift Current and happens to be the 87th meeting.

Uli Cartman, with the board of directors for Pioneer Co-op, is eager for another great turnout and opportunity for friends, neighbours, and community members to connect.

“It’s extremely exciting this year because we’ve never had that many people interested in becoming a board member,” said Cartman.

Voting to elect the next set of board members will happen at the meeting, and all Co-op members can vote for the board. 

“This is their right to see how the organization’s doing, and we will be introducing the patronage allocation at that time,” Cartman noted. “So we’d like to welcome everybody out.”

Cartman encourages as many of the local members as possible to sign up and join their community for dinner, a coffee together, or even join by Zoom.

Those who are interested in attending the event can phone (306)778-8807 or visit the Pioneer Co-op’s website or Facebook page. Registration for in-person attendance closed on April 3 and virtual registration is open until April 16.
