This Easter weekend marks what would have been the 121st opening season of Whalom Park. It's only fitting we kick off our Member-Owner Drive for a New Whalom Park FEC this weekend.
The New Whalom Cooperative, LLC is a consumer cooperative. Consumer cooperatives are enterprises owned by consumers and managed democratically which aim at fulfilling the needs and aspirations of their members. They operate within the market system, independently of the state, as a form of mutual aid, oriented toward service rather than economic gain. Consumers' cooperatives often take the form of retail outlets owned and operated by their consumers, such as food co-ops, health care, insurance, housing, utilities, personal finance (including credit unions) and now amusement parks.
The New Whalom Park will be a Family Entertainment Center (FEC), a small indoor/outdoor Amusement Park available to families year-round. FECs usually cater to sub-regional markets of larger metropolitan areas and are relatively small, when compared to a full-scale traditional amusement park, mostly sustained by a local customer base.
Member-owner units (Shares) are $100.00 each minimum three. There are payment options for those who can't afford the full price option. No matter what option you select you will still receive full member-owner benefits.
Our Member-Owner Drive will continue until the end of Columbus day weekend. We hope to achieve a minimum of 500 Member-Owners but we would like to succeed that goal and than some. If you loved Whalom Park, have fond park memories, want to see it come back to life and preserve its memory. Than become a Member-Owner.
