Arrowhead Cooperative would like to announce recent changes in our Board of Directors.
Best wishes to Lou Terrizzi who resigned from the Board for a long-awaited move to Duluth with his family. Lou represented District 2, the Colvill area, from 2006 until his resignation in October 2013.
Welcome to Sharon Bloomquist who was appointed by the Board of Directors in November to complete the duration of the District 2 term, which will open for election again in 2015. Sharon is a returning Director who has previously served on the Arrowhead Board.
Director election terms last three years, and up to four terms may be served. Districts alternate election years, and elections are held for different districts three out of every four years in the rotation. Contrary to popular belief, Arrowhead Cooperative members may vote for a Director candidate for any district in an election year, not just the district within which the member resides. Director candidates, however, must reside in the district they represent.
For more information regarding Arrowhead Cooperative’s Board of Directors, or to see a list of all current Directors, view our Board of Directors page.
Old Man Winter descends upon the Northland! Word of a coming winter storm prompts thoughts about preparations and safety. Visit http://www.noaa.gov/ to view the warnings for wintry conditions over the next couple of days. It’s a good time to brush up on winter safety both while travelling or in the event you become trapped at home during a winter storm. Arrowhead Cooperative works very hard to maintain power and restore weather related outages quickly. You’ll be more relaxed and comfortable in the case of an outage if you’ve taken a few preparation steps for warmth, food, water and hygiene. Here are a few resources providing safety tips, supply lists and reminders about how to be prepared for winter weather or storms that cause power outages.
We are calling on you to unite with Arrowhead Cooperative in giving to the Salvation Army in order to keep our community members warm and toasty during the approaching holiday season by donating new or handmade winter attire to the Mitten Tree. Feel free to bring your generous donations to the Arrowhead Cooperative office during our regular business hours. All items will be delivered to the local Salvation Army, where they will find a partner in crime to brave the winter chill. Arrowhead Cooperative also serves as a drop-off location for the Cook County Food Shelf year round.
