New Ticket System Helps Plan Event
For decades, we have planned an Annual Co-op Meeting with no idea how many of our nearly 8,000 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!
This year, in addition to moving to a larger venue (the Cider Gallery at 810 Pennsylvania), we will implement 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. Tickets are $5 for adults and free for children under 18.
What you can expect.
In addition to the 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
One complimentary drink ticket (good for Free State Beer or wine, must be 21 years of age)
Plan ahead, owners!
Tickets are limited to the first 225 owners and their families, and we anticipate selling out. Financial assistance may be available. Contact Valerie Taylor, Marketing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-843-8544.
At the event.
Please present your ticket or online receipt at the door. We will have a roster to help quickly sign attendees in.
