Cedar Falls Food Co-op Newsletter: June 2015                         

Join in June for a chance to win a sweet ride!

The number of founding members keeps growing, propelling the Cedar Falls Food Co-op closer to opening its doors. Remember, the sooner we get 1,000 members, the sooner we can have an actual store to shop. We know the interest is out there and that the Food Co-op will soon be open. The board of directors is committed to getting us to our goal as quickly as possible, so they’re offering a fun incentive to all new members who join in June…

It’s our 30 Members in 30 Days membership drive. For every new membership in June, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a brand new Electra Classic Cruiser bicycle from Bike Tech. This is not your ordinary cruiser — it’s a seven speed Shimano shifter, has alloy rims, classic knobby tires, and Electra’s patented Flat Foot Technology. More importantly, it’s fun to ride!

During June, you’ll be able to see the bike around town. If you haven’t yet joined, now’s a great time to consider becoming a member-owner. And if you’re already a member, encourage others to join the Co-op!
