Producer of the Month: Citizen Cider PDF Print E-mail

by Sabine Rhyne
September 2014

So, a wine merchant, a farmer, and a chemist walk into a bar… No, really, it’s not a joke! When Kris Nelson, Justin Heilenbach, and Bryan Holmes made small batches of hard cider in Bryan’s basement, they were creating the modest beginnings of Citizen Cider, now a thriving Burlington hard cider business with an inviting cider-pub overlooking Lake Champlain. And these modest beginnings were only four years ago; the meteoric growth of this inventive and robust cider business has gone from a single run of 5,000 gallons to nearly 100,000 gallons this year.

Board of Directors Report- Co-op Board Elections: Principles & Procedures PDF Print E-mail

by Jon Megas-Russell
September 2014

The other day I walked into our kitchen at work and the following Aristotle quote was written on our white board:  “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”  It made me immediately think of the Brattleboro Food Co-op.  Knowing that our Co-op has been in business for 30-plus years and that it has enjoyed many successes during this time, it made me realize that there is an ongoing commitment from Alex and his staff to running our store using great habits, great policies, great execution, and great vision.  Additionally, as we enter a Board of Directors’ election season, this quote is quite pertinent, as the board strives for excellence during the recruiting, balloting, and voting process.  But did you know there are three principles that underlie the procedures and process of the election?

• One member, one vote
• Member engagement
• Excellence in governance

Electric Car Charging Stations Installed in Transportation Center PDF Print E-mail

Electric vehicle owners living in or visiting Brattleboro now have a new option for charging their cars. The Town of Brattleboro has installed two electric vehicle charging stations on the first level of the Transportation Center at 77 Flat Street. The chargers are suitable for any all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, and will fully charge a battery in approximately 3 to 4 hours, depending on the 
vehicle model. There are three parking spaces reserved for cars that are charging. The State of Vermont will be installing signage directing motorists from exits 1 and 2 on route 91 to the stations. The stations are replacing an obsolete charging station that was installed when the Transportation Center was constructed in 2003.
