Mark Your Calendar for the 2013 Annual Owner’s Meeting

Monday, April 22 – 5:30 pm
First Presbyterian Church
716 College Ave. Racine

We’re excited to confirm the date for our 2013 Owners’ Meeting!  With over 520 owners, we’re expecting a big turnout and are looking forward to bringing the community together for our annual meeting.

This year, we’re having a guest speaker: Mark Kastel with the Cornucopia Institute will join us to talk about Local, Healthy, Sustainable Food Systems: How the Food Choices We Make at the Grocery Store Impact our Health, our Environment and the Economic Vitality of our Community. We invite owners to bring a non-owner friend or two (or more!) to hear Mark speak. (Only owners may attend the Business Meeting but the public is welcome to join us for Mark's presentation and our social time afterward.)

An important order of business will be the election of directors to the Board.  We have an excellent team of individuals with expertise in, among other things, architecture, finance, accounting and marketing and would like to add 2-3 additional directors to join us as we round the corner into the home stretch.  Of special interest would be those with expertise in real estate/construction, finance/business development, graphic design/marketing or implementation of business technologies.  This next year will see us secure our location, obtain financing, build our store and hire the staff who will operate it. There is a lot of work left to do and we need directors who can commit to taking an active role in one or more of these important areas.

If you have the requisite skills and would like to be considered for a Board position, please review our Expectations Summary and submit an applicationApplications must be received by March 15 to be considered for the ballot.

If you are unable to commit to a full Board role, perhaps you would be interested in sharing your skills at the committee level. If so, there will be opportunities at the Owner’s Meeting to connect with a director. And you can always reach out at

You’ve heard the expression, “It Takes a Village.”  In this case, it will take a community--you!--to propel this project ahead. We are well on our way.  With over 520 owners so far, we know we have the necessary talent among our community and we know you want Wild Root Market to open as soon as possible.  So join us!

We’re as fired up as we’ve ever been to bring this project home. So…
