Skookum Celebrates the Year of the Co-op… with You

International Year of Co-operatives to be launched across Canada this January!

We’re 99 members strong, and we’re inviting our members to come out and celebrate the International Year of Cooperatives. Please join us on:

Tuesday January 31, 2012 at 6:00 PM

at the United Church Trinity Hall (6932 Crofton Street, Powell River, kitty-corner to Powell River Municipal Hall at the corner of Duncan and Michigan).

Come help us celebrate the spirit of cooperatives, together. Our much-anticipated 100th member will receive a lovely gift basket at this event, so get a friend to become a member now! Here‘s how to become a member. Check out this great bilingual website on events throughout Canada for the big launch on Jan 12, 2012.


  • Your appetite
  • Your partner and kids
  • Your thoughts about what you want to see Skookum doing in the coming year,what you can offer in terms of time, talent, expertise, tools, food, land, resources…
  • A salad, dessert, or other side dish; Skookum will provide the main course (one vegan, one vegetarian) and beverages
  • A musical instrument if you play one (there is a piano in the Trinity Hall)
  • Some books for the new up-coming Skookum Bookshelf (full details to come ; these are books you are willing to donate to a Skookum members-only lending library housed at Kingfisher Used Books  that have to do with growing, picking, preserving, or sharing food. Examples: How to build a greenhouse, How to cook or bake, how to grow veggies, how to prune, etc.

Please let us know if you know you will be attending, so that we can do a better job of planning the food. Just leave a comment on this blog post or email us to let us know how many people will be attending and what food you plan to bring.

Also, please plan to label the ingredients in the food you bring (for allergy/info purposes); we will have small cards on site for this as well.

We look forward to seeing you there!
