Vernon Hosts Day of Thanks Open Mic


Vernon Oakes, host of the nationally broadcast radio show Everything Co-op, hosts the show’s second Open Mic, to give listeners a chance to give Thanks for their Cooperative Blessings.

Since the Spirit of Thanksgiving is all about showing gratitude for a person’s good fortune and giving to those who are less fortunate. Listeners were encouraged to “Pay it Forward,” and call-in to share how cooperatives have: improved their quality of life; saved them money; improved their financial literacy, standard of living or access to healthy food; provided greater access to products and services, or taught them the principles of living cooperatively.

Several callers chimed to discuss how cooperatives have improved their lives.
