James, Kathleen, Susan, John and I enjoyed a gathering of beer and pizza at the Cedar Mountain Canteen while coming up with a draft mission statement for our sharing cooperative.  We started by each person being asked to write down a few words on scraps of paper that describe things they are passionate about when creating a new business in our community.  We took those scraps of passionate words and arranged them on the table and came up with a draft mission statement:

Providing an equitable community resource by
sharing stuff with neighbors to reduce consumption.

We will continue our business planning on September 18th.  All are welcome.  You can see details here:  https://movingtoconservers.com/event/sharing-coop-steering-committee-meeting/?instance_id=18
