Annual Co-op Meeting

  • The Cider Gallery 810 Pennsylvania Street Lawrence, KS, 66044 United States (map)

Tickets on Sale October 1

Friends, food and fun as we celebrate 45 years of our co-op!

For decades, we have planned an Annual Co-op Meeting with no idea how many of our owners would show up. Sometimes, we’ve had too much food or drink. Other times, not enough. Quite frankly, it’s no way to plan a party!

In addition to moving to a larger venue (the Cider Gallery at 810 Pennsylvania), we have implemented a ticket system. This is not an effort to exclude anyone or to make a profit. Instead, it’s simply a way to ensure that we have enough space and good, local food to go around. 

Ticket sales will begin at noon on October 1 and will be available in store and online at www.themerc.coop/acm. Meeting tickets are $5 for adults and free for children under 18.*

What You Can Expect

In addition to board election results and updates about your co-op, a delicious hearty, vegan-friendly meal will be served courtesy of our deli and bakery. Plus, for every $5 adult ticket purchased, you will also receive:

  • One $5 coupon for use on co-op purchases

  • Complimentary drinks (Free State Beer and wine, must be 21+)

Plan Ahead, Owners 

Meal tickets are limited to the first 225 owners and their families, and we anticipate selling out. Financial assistance may be available. Questions? Contact Laura Marsh at outreach@themerc.coop or 785-843-8544.

At The Event

You are welcome to present your ticket or online receipt at the door. We will also have a roster to help sign attendees in.

*Owners may RSVP to attend the meeting portion only at no charge.
