The theme for Co-op Month this year is “Co-operatives Build”—they build community, they build the economy, they build better jobs, they build opportunity, and through all of these efforts, they build a brighter future! The month of October is a time for millions of co-op and credit union members across the country to join the National Cooperative Business Association in celebrating the work that these co-operative enterprises do to strengthen the economic and social landscape.
In that spirit, we have a month of community-supportive programming planned, that highlights the ways in which your co-op connects with Franklin County! From the first annual Survivor Art Show on display at 170 Main Street to the Greenfield Annual Word Festival and more, please visit our Events Calendar regularly to find new ways to celebrate everything that ‘Co-operatives Build’ with us all October long.
