This week at your Co-op
January 12, 2020
Dear Members,

Did everybody catch that rainbow today? The weather has been acting up, but on the flip side, we've been getting some amazing rainbows.

This past week I was sick with the bug going around the island, and I'd just like to send a shout out to this amazing team that keeps the Co-op a-buzzing. They were like, "Boss Lady, go home." So I did.

I am so grateful to work with a team that takes care of each other and steps up. Everytime - steps up. They never cease to amaze me.

Let's bundle up and look out for each one another. Self-care is important, so if you need to slow down - do it. We've got some crazy weather headed our way, so stock up and be careful, everyone.

Warm and health thoughts,

Kristin
