The new Board of Directors will begin their three-year terms on January 1.Ramsay, a nurse and acupuncturist, has been a Co-op member for the past three years and was also a member many years ago when the Co-op was located on Archibald Street. Ramsay is also an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Nursing at the University of Vermont where she teaches several courses in Chinese Medicine.Munkres has been involved in organic gardening, CSA’s, farmers’ markets, and co-ops for over 20 years, but most recently lived in the deep South where alternatives to the conventional food system were few and far between. She also teaches about food systems to high school and college students.Warnken, a family physician at the Community Health Center, has lived in Burlington for the past four years. As a physician at the Health Center, he says he sees the impact that nutrition has on our community every day and is looking forward to using those experiences to help continue City Market’s mission.Three Board of Directors, Garry Schaedel, David Booth and Kiernan Flynn, are stepping down on December 31. Both Schaedel and Booth served two full terms on the Board and both were President at different times. “They helped navigate the Co-op through rocky waters early in their terms,” said General Manager Clem Nilan. “It is a fitting tribute that they leave Onion River Co-op in a much better place than they found it.” Flynn served the Board for one year.About City Market, Onion River Co-opThe Onion River Co-op is a consumer cooperative, with over 3,200 members, selling wholesome food and other products while building a vibrant, empowered community and a healthier world, all in a sustainable manner.
