Alger Delta Cooperative has experienced a sad loss in the passing of a director. Bessie Anderson, of Menominee, was fairly new to the board, having been elected in June 2012. “She was enthusiastic about getting involved and attended CCD training in Bay City in August 2012,” says Alger CEO Tom Harrell. “She was a great person and good board member who regularly contributed and had lots of questions. She served on the employee relations committee and was engaged in contract negotiations, which had just begun,” he said.
