I've long thought about writing a book about the Co-op. First, I wanted to write a fun little piece called, "Notes to the Kat," detailing the many incredible stories that our members pass along to their favorite feline character and our mascot.
Lately, I've been working on piecing together a more historical perspective on building a family business--the lessons we've learned, the highs and lows we've experienced, and the community we've built and enjoy. My working title is "Health, Humor & HTML: Adventures in growing a family business."
What is clear to me is that my readers might be able to help me tell the story of the early years of the Co-op, so this is my first invitation for memories of the "beginning:" how you found the Co-op, what was your relationship to the "Dr. Jon" character (a pseudonym my dad used when he started the Co-op), and what events stand out most in your mind through the years.
