Seeking working members for Celebration Team


Hi there friends!Member Appreciation Week
October 19th-25th

There is so much to celebrate this year!!
It’s our 35th birthday!! October is National Co-op month and Non GMO month so we are extending our Member Appreciation Time to a solid week!
This gives us time to welcome many more growers and producers of our products, offer samples and education tables, a raffle and for members to have a longer opportunity to enjoy the benefit of additional discounts. We will offer a one-time shopping trip with an additional 10% discount on top of your everyday member-owner discount. (Weekly workers and staff will receive an additional 5% discount).
I am seeking support in the following areas to prepare for this big event:
Planning team (starting now)
Poster makers (starting now)
Decorating team (October 18)
The time you dedicate to this project will be applied to your working member time (just in time to increase your discount for the big week!!)
Please send an email if you’re interested or give a call 207-594-8822 M-F


Closing at 4pm Sunday, Aug 30

The staff of  Good Tern is excited to announce that we will be closing at 4pm on Sunday, August 30th. The personnel committee has planned an appreciation party for the employees and our families. We will be swimming, kayaking, frolicking and eating together on Sunday afternoon. Please plan your shopping trip accordingly.
