Celebrating Service & Friendship
Do you know this woman? We do! It’s Susan McGaughey, our general manager at Valley Natural Foods. Not only do we know this woman, we hold her in the highest regard as fellow member-owner, leader and friend. If you were to look at the growth of Valley Natural Foods under her direction, you would see a steady line of annual increase. So we also know what she can do.
Over the past 30 years Susan has applied her steady leadership and committed her serving heart to Valley Natural Foods. And she has had good company along the way. Kathleen Boegemann, operations manager of our co-op, was recently honored at an all-staff meeting for her 20 years of service. Both women have been committed to excellence, sharing a long-time journey and friendship. Their commitment to excellence has garnered Valley Natural Foods several prestigious awards this past year. Please visit: This is Our Co-op of Excellence and Our Excellence Continues.
We invite you to toast Susan McGaughey for her 30 years of successful service at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 18. There will be a spread of fine cheese from our deli and sparkling juice for a toast. Our board members and management team will be on hand, and we welcome you to join the brief celebration of Susan’s 30 years. Or, you can stop by our co-op earlier that day, after 2 p.m. and enjoy a free, celebratory, gluten-free cupcake baked by our friends at Beyond The Grain. Our Gluten-Free Day demonstration begins at 3:00 p.m. and cupcakes will be available at the demo kiosk while they last. Click here for our Co-op Calendar.
