|March at the
Co-op: Lectures, Workshops and Classes
|We are outgrowing not only our store space, but our
print space as well! Our list of Co-op based events is now about three
times longer than it was a few years ago--and we need to make room on
the printed page for our growing list of events. Based on readership
polls and discussions between store and Coop Scoop staff, we will no
longer run the printed version of our community calendar. We are not
discontinuing the calendar--we're just changing to an online-only
format. You'll find it on the Co-op's website: www.honestweight. coop.
Please continue to send listings to our calendar editor, Susan Palmer (email@example.com).
We'll continue to publish Co-op events and meetings in the printed
newsletter. - Judy Trupin, Scoop editor

Honest Weight's bulletin boards now feature a musician- to-musician
area, that we hope you'll make use of. We know, it's kind of a low-tech
way of finding people in our Facebook/Tweeter/Myspace age, but hey,
that's where some of us are! So if you're looking to start a band, join
a band, or abandon the band you're in for another, consider posting
something on the board.
