Board holds breakfast forums

Drawing strength from our roots
If you look at a map of the Seattle area, you'll see that the annual meeting will be held this year at a site almost exactly equidistant from our two oldest stores — Ravenna (opened in 1976 and closed this year) and Kirkland (opened in 1978). PCC has roots on both sides of the lake and in more parts of the greater Seattle area, as we know from our members, who write to us asking for a new PCC store in their neighborhood.
