Co-op kicks off membership drive

LAKE COUNTY – Lake County Community Co-op (LCC Co-op) kicked off its membership drive for the Buying Club on March 8.

Fifteen people decided on the spot to become members and paid the $24 annual fee. The plan is to have orders placed with select suppliers by the end of March.

"The Buying Club is the first step in opening the doors of a community co-op, and we're quite excited by the energy generated so far with the project," said JoAnn Saccato, an organizer with the co-op.

Anyone interested in becoming a Buying Club member can contact William Thaete at 994-4486.


LCC Co-op is also asking local citizens to take part in their market feasability study. Opinions are being sought regarding which sites, products and services would best fit the needs of our community.

The survey is available online at http://lakecountycommunityco-op.wikispaces.com by clicking on the "Take the Survey" link.

"This survey is vital to our efforts,” said a spokesperson at the meeting. “We encourage everyone to take the five-minute survey online if possible, to conserve both resources and data entry efforts, however paper copies will also be distributed throughout the community.”

The meeting will be broadcast on TV8 in the near future.

The LCC Co-op group meets on the second Saturday of each month at the Hot Spot on Golf Avenue in Clearlake from 10 a.m. until noon. The next meeting will be on April 12. New members are encouraged to attend.
