The Lovettsville Co-op Market (LCM) will host its Annual Member Meeting on Thursday, February 23rd, 7:30pm at the Lovettsville Volunteer Fire & Rescue (LVFR) event hall.  A happy hour and “chili cook off” will be held prior to the member meeting from 6:30-7:30pm.  The happy hour and cook off are open to both Co-op members and non-members. Participants are welcome to bring a slower cooker of their favorite homemade chili at 6:30pm to be tasted by attendees, and the Co-op will provide fresh-baked bread to accompany the entries.  Guest judges will choose the winner prior to the commencement of the member meeting.  Local beer and wine will be available for purchase as well as non-alcoholic beverages. 

Those interested in learning more about the Co-op’s mission, and its plan for a grocery store in the space currently occupied by the LVFR, are encouraged to attend the happy hour.  The first three people to join the Co-op during the happy hour will receive a complimentary ticket to the Co-op’s Farmer’s Feast Dinner at Market Table Bistro in the spring.  Board members will be available to answer questions from guests and provide short tours of the future grocery store space during the happy hour. The annual meeting will begin at 7:30pm and is open to members only.
