Marlboro store group plans organization meeting

MARLBORO — Townspeople are invited to a joint meeting of the finance and vision committees of the Marlboro Store Group, a consortium of volunteers who are seeking to establish community ownership of the convenience store on Route 9 that was formerly Sweetie's.

The meeting will adopt bylaws and elect officers for the store group and establish it as a sub-group of the Marlboro Alliance, a nonprofit civic organization.

The Marlboro Alliance has been serving as the Marlboro Store Group's fiscal agent.

The meeting takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 6:30 in the Junior High at Marlboro Elementary School.

Tax-deductible donations toward the exploratory efforts may be sent to Marlboro Alliance, c/o Pam Burke, Box 42, Marlboro, VT 05344. Please put “Community Store Fund” in the check's memo line.
