First Fundraiser!

Milk District Party/BBQ


Milk District (The spot on robinson behind T.G. Lee, with Beta/Covert/Etoile etc.) - where most races here end


Saturday, January 17th // 12NOON-7PM


This is going to be a cool fun day to hang out. Firstly, Beta, Covert and Etoile are all having sales on their respective wares, There will be FREE vegan hot dogs provided by Aaron, the GRAND OPENING of both, ETOILE's new location (in the front of the building) and a NEW RECORD STORE called WIGGLY WORLD in the spot behind - where Etoile used to be.

This will functionally be the first fundraiser in a series of many to get the co-op going. Etoile has offered us a spot to table to tell people about the project, as well as to solicit donations. There are a couple plans working themselves out, but it looks like we'll have tools/bike repair, a donation jar, a "diorama," and buttons for sale. Etoile is also donating 10% of their sales to the project as well as having, on their own counter, a donation jar. Let's make this a strong start to a great project! Come out, hang out, eat some vegan hot dogs, buy some clothes or skateboards or records, and we'll help this community grow together.


Mike says he's got a table and a popup tent, I've got some tools, a toolbox and a workbench/workstand, we ought to be able to use the food not bombs truck to get the big stuff there. I'm working on the diorama today, probably finish by friday. Julius has agreed to make some buttons. Antimo/Jon Scarboro, will you be able to have the mission statement available? Does anyone want to come up with some literature? does anyone want to add on anything?
