Members of Marquette Consumers Co-operative are invited to the group’s annual meeting and director election on April 17 at the Meadow Lea Hall.
The hall is located north of Marquette at the intersection of PTH 248 and 227.
Formed over 60 years ago, Marquette Co-operative has locations in Marquette and Starbuck.
Alexa Fleury, office manager in Marquette, said the Marquette location primarily serves agricultural needs, selling crop supplies, feed and livestock equipment, while the Starbuck location is more like a convenience store.
The co-operative has about 1,500 active members, but averages close to 65 attendees at its annual meeting.
Run by a board of six directors and a president, this year’s annual meeting will include the election of one director. Nomination forms are available at both locations and must be returned by 4 p.m. on April 3.
Fleury said members will also find out about any major changes planned for the coming year.
"They tell members about any purchases, renovations," she said, adding that she doesn’t expect any controversial discussions at the April 17 meeting.
A supper beginning at 7 p.m. will precede the meeting and tickets can be purchased at both locations for $10 before April 4 and $15 afterward. Anyone can attend the meeting at 8 p.m. There is no charge to attend.
