It seems so long ago that we had a group gathering, but we hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and continuing your work and daily routines as much as possible.  In keeping with COVID19 precautions, we are going virtual this year for our annual meeting.  An invitation will be sent out to all members via email with a link to our GoToMeeting.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is the best we can do this year.  We hope you can join us.  If questions or comments, please contact  us at info@lovettsville-grocery.com

Thank you for your support and patience!

 

 

 

 

Chairman’s Challenge Contest!

John DeSaix, Chair of the Lovettsville Cooperative Market, is offering a challenge to our membership. This is an amazing time for our Co-op. Since our announcement of the new grocery store location in October, we have had a steady stream of new members sign on and we want to build on that enthusiasm. So, to make things a little more interesting, he has announced the Chairman’s Challenge!

Current members will have an opportunity to compete for a $50 gift certificate donated by him for some amazing beef, lamb and/or chicken from Donnie Ulmer’s Milcreek Farm in Lovettsville.

CONTEST DETAILS:  All current members are challenged to sign up as many new members as you can between December 1 and December 20, 2020. The current member who signs up the most new members, WINS!  You must be able to pick up your gift certificate near Lovettsville within one week of winning.  We cannot ship certificate nor product.

Send an email to membership@lovettsville-grocery.com when you sign someone up.

Here are some talking points to add to your own when encouraging your friends and neighbors to join:

  • We have a definite location in downtown Lovettsville with a dedicated builder and a concrete schedule to open in the 3rd quarter of 2022
  • Each new member helps us move toward opening our doors by showing our investors our level of community support
  • Membership is an investment in our community by supporting our local farmers, producers and local economy

Please tell your friends to join at www.lovettsville-grocery.com/join-us

The stars have truly aligned to make our locally-grown, community-owned co-op grocery store a reality. Thanks for making this happen!

ADOPT-A-Highway CLEAN UP – Dec 6

DATE:  Sunday, December 6, 2020

TIME:  2:00 PM

LOCATION:  Meet at Bonnie’s Country Kitchen parking lot

Please join us for the Fall litter clean up on our Adopt-A-Highway stretch from Purcell Road to the Potomac River along Route 287.  We will meet at Bonnie’s Country Kitchen parking lot (Sadly, Bonnie’s is closing so it may be under another name then).  Bags, vests, gloves and limited grabbers will be provided.  Due to the terrain and this high-traffic section of road, all volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.

We appreciate your participation!
