Message from Skookum


(originally sent as an email to our members Dec 21, 2013) I slept in a little this morning although I did not realize this until after I found my watch (no easy feat) to find the time.  Almost 7 o’clock and yet it is fully dark outside, the forest is quiet except for the calls of owls.

This  solstice for me is the beginning of the new year.  The planet has tilted as far as it will on its journey around the sun and we’re on the doorstep of winter.  A time for reflection and a time for celebration with thoughts of renewal uppermost in my mind.

With that in mind I would like to offer my best wishes to you and thanks for your contributions and involvement with Skookum Food and Provisioners co-op.  I am very much looking forward to working with you all towards an engaged and sustainable future.

For the board, I offer our best wishes to you today, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
