MVFC Live at the Farmers Market and Around Haverhill
Interested in volunteering with the MVFC? We're glad you asked, and have several options for you:
1. Help us at the Farmers Market on July 11 and September 12. We will be doing another fun activity.
2. Join a committee and spread the word - Outreach, Volunteer Coordination, Planning, Social Media, Web Development and more
3. Host a Pot-Luck for your neighbors, co-workers, or social group. Just tell us when you are available, we all prepare a dish and talk co-op in a fun, casual setting.
4. Do you know about a group we should meet, people who need to know about a co-op grocery in Haverhill? Please send them our way.
MVFC Board Participated in Economic Development Conference
The Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce put together an excellent panel recently, including Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, Jay Ash. Two of our MVFC Board Members took part in the networking and informational opportunities at the event. We were able to let several key local business people and politicians know about our co-op plans and have already learned good information about development in the city.
We are getting the word out a the right time, but we need more members to commit with a share so we can be a strong financial force taking the next steps.
Can you make a $150 commitment toward the MVFC future today? G

MVFC Making News
We finished the Haverhill Journal interviews about the co-op at the May meeting and Lindsay did her editing magic.
You can see the whole episode here on their YouTube link: MVFC on Haverhill Journal
Kids Arts Fest was a huge success. Everyone had fun getting a little messy with the stamping project but it made a nice ice breaker for people who didn't know about our activities. We welcome those 60 new families who signed up for the email newsletter. Thanks and please get involved!
