                To help our members save money on goods and services of all kinds, we started
                the Co-op Connections program. To help area businesses prosper and grow,
                we promote them free when they honor the Co-op Connections Card.
                                                                                                              Northern Lights • August 2008   
                Members take out the Co-op Connections Card anywhere they see a Co-op Connections sticker.
                They save. The business gains a new customer. Everyone wins. We believe in looking out for you.
