Often there is mis-information about co-ops, or misunderstanding. Thot we regret. Fortunately, we have not experienced that to any extent locally. Co-Ops pay taxes, they meet local payrolls, they support local civic projects and efforts, and they are owned by your friends and neighbors. Sometimes it might be felt that a Co-Op takes • things for granted. We do not. We have enjoyed and appreciated the friendly relationships we have enjoyed in the Fenton area, and we're taking this opportunity to say so. We hope to continue as sound, progressive members of the Fenton business community.
