Important Announcement

By Mike Lents, Board Chair, Co-op Owner

Dear GreenTree Owners,

I hope this message finds you well. It is with mixed emotions that I, on behalf of the Board of Directors, share some significant news with you all. After 20 years of dedicated service, our remarkable General Manager, Sarah Christensen, has decided to resign from her role at GreenTree. While we are very sad to lose such an excellent asset for our store, we are delighted for her next opportunity and look forward to her future success.

Sarah has been an integral part of our cooperative, contributing her skills, passion, entrepreneurial knowledge, and energy to the growth and success of GreenTree. Her embodiment of cooperative values and her exceptional leadership have played a crucial role in shaping our organization over the last two decades. We owe her a debt of gratitude for her extraordinary work over the years.

In particular, we want to acknowledge Sarah’s unwavering dedication and innovation in spearheading our expansion project. Her vision and strategic thinking have been instrumental in driving our co-op forward. As we bid farewell to Sarah, we express our deepest appreciation for the lasting impact she has had on GreenTree.

Sarah’s last day with us will be December 29th. We invite you to watch for details about a special event to bid her farewell and express our collective gratitude for her years of service.

To ensure a smooth transition and continue our positive momentum, the Board of Directors has formed a search committee tasked with creating a thorough process for the Board to hire our next leader. We understand that this is a significant change for our organization, but we want to assure you that we have a talented team in place that is fully capable of maintaining the day-to-day operations during this transitional period.

We are committed to keeping you informed as the search for a new General Manager progresses. Please join us in expressing our deepest thanks to Sarah for her years of service and wishing her the very best in her future endeavors.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
Mike Lents, Board Chair

    I’m just a little one-sided about Sarah’s work at GreenTree. She has never ceased to amaze me. Her dedication to the store reflects in all the other employees.
    I am confident that that board will find another GM, that feels the same way.
    Best wishes on your new adventure Sarah.❤️

    Sarah. Although intermittent, it has been a pleasure to have worked with you through this recent change! A very bold move and masterfully handled. Wishing you an awesome future, wherever and whatever that may be.

    I am biased for sure, but Sarah had been an inspiration to me from day one. They way she looks at the community and works, not just talks, to get involvement from everyone is amazing. I personally know that her work at GreenTree was done with every ounce of her soul. She never asked from others what she wouldn’t do herself and that included all of the extra work to get GreenTree into the place it is now. She loves the team she has worked with and the community they all served. Best of luck, Sarah!! You’ve got this
