Wanstead Farmers Co-operative - Annual Meeting

94th Annual Meeting

Nick Gerrits, Co-operative Young Leader Camp participant,
sharing his summer camp experiences to owners and guests

 
A large group of Wanstead Farmers Co-operative owners, customers and guests attended the 94th annual meeting held at the Wyoming Fair Building on December 7, 2017. Very informative presentations were given by two Wanstead Farmers Co-operative staff. Alan Lockhart, crop sales specialist, on farming practices from his native Ireland and Floyd Howard, grain merchandising manager, on the contrast of farming from a western Canada perspective.

Martin Gerrits, Wanstead Farmers Co-operative board president and Peter Kelly general manager, each gave detailed reports on another successful year. Martin Gerrits announced that the co-operative will be paying back 25 per cent of retained patronage in cash to members. Peter Kelly reviewed operational highlights from the past year, including the highlighting of new capital assets acquired during the year to help provide better and faster service to owners.

Ontario Co-operative Young Leader camp attendee Nick Gerrits, sponsored by Wanstead Farmers Co-operative this past summer, shared his experiences at camp and the valuable lessons he had learned. Re-elected to the Wanstead Farmers Co-operative board of directors for another three-year term was Nathan Ikert. Newly elected was Rick Patterson. One position remains temporarily vacant and will be dealt with by the board at a future date.

Kim Fysh, Ontario regional director for GROWMARK congratulated Wanstead Farmers Co-operative on a successful year and gave a brief overview of the GROWMARK system. Retiring
board member Les Douglas was presented a gift for his nine consecutive years on the board by fellow director Joe Joosten. Also, Wanstead Farmers employee Jerry Roane was recognized for his 40 years of service with a gift presented by Peter Kelly.
