Day 127: Steve and Kay

11 Aug

This week has been a momentous week for the Meford Food Co-op. There was a “soft” opening for co-op members only earlier in the week and the grand opening is scheduled for this Saturday.

So many details had to be dealt with before this opening could occur and we are very lucky that Steve was a part of the team. We are all familiar with the saying “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, before the Medford Food Co-op could open, a lot of work needed to be done. And Steve was one of those people who helped transform the lovely space that was created into the store that it has become.

I am so grateful that Steve (and his wife Kay) became a part of the team that made the dream of the Medford Food Co-op into a reality. What it took was many long hours of hard work. How do you thank someone for that? Surely a salary alone cannot adequately express our gratitude.

Tonight, Steve stopped at our house on his way home. I don’t know if he knew that I had a pie waiting for him but when he saw it he said, “You didn’t have to do that.” And while that is true, I hope he knows that it is just a small attempt to express our sincerest thanks for his (and Kay’s) dedication to this wonderful project.
