October Report from the Board of Directors

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, I wish to extend my warm and heart-felt appreciations to every one of you for contributing to the amazing success of our food co-op during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a massive co-operative effort by staff, board, members, and community to navigate so many changes, so quickly, and in the midst of so much uncertainty during the past six months. 

Every aspect of Karma’s operations has evolved during the crisis, and we have accomplished so much together—even while remaining safely apart. As an organization and as a community, we have consistently demonstrated our tenacity, creativity, resilience, caring, and capacity to achieve more than any of us would have imagined before the pandemic.

I am especially grateful to my fellow Board members for their dedication and hard-work this past year, and to our ever-present General Manager, Talia McGuire, who has shouldered so much of the necessary logistics and problem-solving to transform our operations.  As a continuing member of Karma’s 2020-21 Board, I am excited to see what we can accomplish together in the year ahead.

Happy Thanksgiving celebrations to you and your family, Karma friends!
