Play, win and celebrate at Alberni Co-op’s Members’ Day

Games, prizes, food and fun are all planned for the July 7 festivities

Alberni District Co-op was built on community, so it’s fitting the long-standing local organization takes time each year to say thank you to that community!

Saturday, July 7 is Alberni District Co-op’s annual Members’ Day, extra special this year as the Co-op prepares to celebrate 90 years in the Valley.

Join your local Co-op team at Glenwood Centre from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., where several hundred members and guests are expected through the day.

“Without them we wouldn’t have the Co-op,” says Angie Croxen, Alberni District Co-op operations manager.

“It’s a great time and it’s wonderful to see everyone when they stop by. Our staff and board members look forward to this as just much as our members!”

And for those who have yet to get their membership, you can do that too! Stop by the membership table where staff will be happy to sign you up.

As a membership-based company, profits are returned to members, so for a one-time membership fee of $10, members receive annual rebates based on the amount of purchases they make through the year. Last year, the Alberni Co-op gave back 3.5 per cent on members’ purchases!

Here’s what’s happening Saturday:

Entertaining ideas: The local youth performance group Alberni Teens Can Rock will entertain through the day, the PEAK radio station will be on hand and the district’s 4H members will visit with their animals. Kids can also let off some steam in the bouncy castles and you can even try your hand at archery.

Fuel up for fun: Local Shriners will be at the grill cooking up hot dogs and hamburgers.

History on display: Tapping into the Co-op’s long local history, the Industrial Heritage Society will have their vehicles on-site, always a hit with enthusiasts of all ages.

Spin the wheel on prizes: Take a spin on the prize wheel for a chance to win a wide array of prizes, then sit down to a Bingo game or two. There will even be draws at the end of the day for five $200 Co-op gift cards.

See you Saturday at Glenwood Centre!

Alberni District Co-op has an array options for its members. It recently opened its new location at 3820 10th Ave, joining two other longstanding stations at Johnson Road and Beaver Creek Road. The Furnace Department was added in 2006, offering tank and furnace installations and annual furnace protection plans.

 

Lots of kids activities are planned for the July 7 event, plus visits from the 4H animals, musical entertainment, a barbecue and more.
