Notes from the June Board of Directors meeting:
This month, Oceana will celebrate its 40th birthday, and will commemorate the event with an ice cream social celebration on Saturday, August 5th, from 1 p.m – 3 p.m.
Oceana needs more membership income to be able to pay for repairs and to save up the the eventual purchase of another walk-in cooler that would allow the store to have more and better produce.
The idea was brought up to have an annual senior membership fee of $12, which is half of the regular annual membership fee. The Board has approved sending postcard ballots asking current members to vote on this proposal. Ballots can be mailed back or brought to the store.
Seniors who do not pay a membership fee right now are not registered as members. All seniors paying the $12 fee would be entered into our membership database. In the event of dissolution of the store, senior members would then be entitled to receive their fraction of the store assets, which they would not receive under the current system.
