Woven into the fabric of our Co-op's storied history is a strong tradition of community service. This tradition is made possible by our members, men and women dedicated to building a world of cooperation and socioeconomic justice, one local community at a time.
Each year, we honor this tradition by recognizing a Co-op member with the Allen and Nan King Award for Community Service. Our King Award recipients are diverse in background but similar in commitment. Their mutual altruism and concern for community is reflected in the cooperative principles and values they share as Co-op members. In short, the King Award is a special honor. And it is named after two very special Co-op members.
The late Allen and Nan King joined the Hanover Co-op in 1942. For the next 50 years, they served as active Co-op members, Board members, and Board presidents, bringing lively discussion and reasoned opinion to decades of Board meetings and Annual Meetings. Both were avid believers in the cooperative model, and both contributed to the local and wider community in many ways.
Co-op members, please take a moment to honor Allen and Nan King by nominating a Co-op member for the King Award. Nominees should be Co-op members who have shown a commitment to sustaining or enhancing the well-being of their respective communities.
Nominate a Co-op Member today!
The recipient will be honored at the Co-op's annual meeting with $500 for the charity of his or her choice.
> Nomination Deadline: Friday, February 16
