Lakewinds Annual Owner Meeting Recap

Sunday, September 17, 2023


Thank you, owners, for celebrating our co-op community with us at our Annual Owner Meeting! Together we heard the board of directors’ election results, went over our latest fiscal year results, and heard about plans for the future. The afternoon was full of family-friendly fun on the farm, including wagon rides, sheep and llama visits, feeding cows apples, woolen crafts, and more.


Board of directors election results

Lakewinds owners have voted and the results are in! Incumbent Bill Stevens was reelected, and newly elected board members are Peter Nguyen and Shannon Ash. They’ll help guide the co-op for the next three years. Thank you to all the candidates who ran, and congratulations to this year’s elected board members!

We also said goodbye to two outgoing board members, Ryan Reichenbach and Glory Alcantara. Thank you for your years of service and we wish you all the best!


Community connections

We were joined by 2023 LOFF grant recipients, Abdi-Mayfield Farm and Derrydale Farm; and Community Giving Round Up recipients, Every Meal, Division of Indian Work, TC Food Justice, and Green Garden Bakery.
