Scheduled in late October, it's the time when we gather to have food and refreshments, enjoy entertainment, be inspired by an informational speaker, review the past fiscal year, vote on any bylaw changes, and elect board members. All member-owners are encouraged to attend and participate; a quorum is needed to conduct business. We are member powered, and the Hampden Park Co-op Annual Meeting is one way to make your vote count!

The 928 News is published quarterly featuring information and articles of interest to co-op members. It includes reports from the general manager and the board of directors, member-owners' shopping discount coupons, and much more. The newsletter is mailed to member-owners, and a few extras are available for shoppers' reading enjoyment near the front of the store.
Member-Owners: if you're not receiving your newsletter, please reach out to make sure we have your address. Fill out a change of address slip in the store, or email us.
Anyone: find the most recent newsletter as a pdf here.

In May, on the Saturday afternoon before Mother's Day, HPC holds our annual Mayfest festival to kick off the gardening season. This event celebrates spring and community with an outdoor extravaganza of musical acts, a food truck, a beer stand, product samples, neighborhood outreach tables, games and face painting for the kiddos, and pollinator-friendly plants galore (annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, hanging baskets, seeds). Everyone is welcome – and you don't need to be a gardener to have a good time at our parking lot party!
Take a look at the fab lineup from last year's 2017 Mayfest here.
