The purpose of the meeting is to report on the operations and finances of SCPS in 2009 and to elect not more than three (3) directors to each serve 3-year terms on the Board.

Only persons who are owners at the close of business as of the day immediately preceding the date of this notice shall be entitled to receive notice and to vote.

Each shareowner* has one and only one vote on each matter submitted, despite the actual number of shares owned. If an owner is unable to attend, but wants to vote, he or she must complete the ballot included with this Notice and return it as prescribed on the ballot.

Dated: March 12, 2010

Sally D. Deinzer
President, Board of Directors

* A “shareowner” is defined as a household, regardless of the number of shares owned; thus only one vote per household is permitted.

WORKSHOPS, Sundays in March

We are pleased to offer workshops every Sunday in March, thanks to Maya Zelkin, a local potter and traditional foods enthusiast. We have tried her maple marshmallows, crackers and pickles. They are incredibly delicious, so we are excited that Maya is willing to share her skills and recipes with us and anyone else who's interested. These workshops will be FREE, though donations are much appreciated. Please register in advance if possible--call 492-3326 or sign up the next time you're in the store. Walk-ins will also be kindly welcomed. ALL WORKSHOPS ARE SUNDAY 1:00-3:00 PM.

March 7: Intro. to Vinegar-Free Pickles
Use salt to ferment and preserve vegetables. Workshop will feature a demonstration of preparing kim chi (Korean sauerkraut) and a brined vegetable, and a discussion of recipes, techniques, and principles of lacto-fermentation.

Local yellow corn cooked with dolomitic limestone will be ground wet, pressed, and cooked. We will share recipes which use tortillas.

Learn to prepare flour and grains to make wholesome, delicious crackers from scratch.

We will celebrate spring in this class, with dairy processing and maple treats. Learn to make butter, yogurt, and soft cheese from local jersey cow milk. Then make an assortment of maple-sweetened confections and candies to celebrate this year's sugaring season.
