A big thank you to Ideal Corners and the surrounding community for your support of the Ideal Green Market Cooperative at the recent Spring Into Ideal: Gourmet Small Plate Lunch & Silent Auction held at the Old Milwaukee Club (OMC). Approximately $4,000 was raised! Special thanks go to the staff at OMC: Jeff Feltman, owner/chef; Kevin Damm, chef; Trina Magnolo-kitchen assistant; Melissa Ford, waitress; and Deb Gerdin, bartender. The gourmet lunch was a culinary delight, drawing rave reviews. Some of the menu items served are also available in the OMC Executive Dining Room, which can be reserved for groups of six-14. Additional thanks to Ron and Judy Kidder for their vision and ongoing commitment! Thank you to the Ideal Community Service Organization for their donation of $700 towards signage. Thank you to area businesses from Crosslake, Pequot Lakes and Pine River and to all the co-op member-owners and friends who donated items for the silent auction. Thank you to John and Mary Plein of Plein Consulting for all the copies and folding! Thank you to all the volunteers, what a team! We gained 14 new members, bringing us to 62 member-owners, and counting!

Don't miss the Co-op's Saturday Farmers' Markets starting May 16, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (next to Old Milwaukee Club). Our mission is providing access to local, sustainable, healthy food and goods.

Ideal Green Market Co-op, a developing food co-op, is truly a community venture and together we are creating a viable, sustainable, local, healthy, food and products outlet from which all will benefit.

On behalf of the IGMC Board: Jason Baca, Geoff Davidge, John Ehlert, Dan Kayser, Kim Larson, John Plein, Eleanor Rice, and Dan Yavner; and Barb Mann, Co-op Coordinator, thank you!
