Magnificent Member Awards!

We are developing a new platform to  recognize co-op    members who make  meaningful contributions to the community through helpful and supportive gestures to neighbours, helping out around the co-op, creating positive social  connections / initiatives or, in general, being an awesome presence here at DFC!

Is there someone who you think should be  recognized?

Have a story to share about how a neighbor came through for you?

If so, please contact Ryan or Ali in the main office.
