This past Saturday, July 8, VFC hosted a "Coffee with the Board" event in our seating area. Five Board Members (Mike Link, Eric Newman, Eric Snowdeal, Larry Homstad and Peter Bergquist) were in attendance to answer questions and receive owner feedback about the VFC Expansion project and Capital Campaign.

We were impressed and excited by the turnout at the event. VFC Owners were excited to share their feedback on our Expansion. Owners asked a variety of questions about the expansion, including questions on what services the expansion includes, the impact that the expansion will have on the community, how New Markets Tax Credits fit into the financing, and many more. Many VFC Owners were eager for the expansion to begin and curious to see the most recent expansion floor plans.

Investments are rolling in for our Capital Campaign! In fact, a few owners stopped by the Coffee with the Board event with investment paperwork. We now have $220,825 in Class C Stock Investments. If you haven’t invested yet, we want you to invest in the Co-op! Investing in the Co-op now is a great way to grow your money while supporting the future growth of your Co-op and community. Learn more about investing here or visit the VFC and pick up an investment packet at Owner Services. We aim to have $1,000,000 in owner investments by August 15, so invest now while you still can.
