DC-Area Co-ops, Community and Service Organizations – Let’s Celebrate!

2012 Community TourCooperatives, community service and volunteer organizations in the DC-metro area are invited to come together for one evening to celebrate those who give their hearts, time and skills to strengthen our community.

The 2012 Community Tour was created by Cabot Creamery Cooperative and its fellow sponsors as a two-month program celebrating volunteers and communities. The Tour started on May 12, 2012, in Miami, Florida, and will continue 2,300 miles up the East Coast, culminating in Portland, Maine, on July 7, the International Day of Cooperatives.
