Seward Co-op’s 50th anniversary block party at Open Streets Franklin was a huge success! Skilled and flexible co-op staff, board members, and community organizations helped make this celebration possible. Thanks to everyone who attended, especially those who did not let intermittent rain showers deter their dancing to KRSM-curated tunes from DJs Talia Knight and Drunken Monkeee, and performances by Malamanya and Kashimana.
At the party, kids got their wiggles out in a giant cow-shaped bounce house, attendees shared memories and visions of the future with board members, and browsed art made by talented Seward Co-op staff. Over 300 people enjoyed a delicious $5 meal featuring ingredients from Community Foods producers, evidenced by a line full of enthusiastic (and patient!) attendees all afternoon.
