Ron Dunphy leads the group seeking to form New Generation.Dunphy says they’re anxious to be a part of the proposal that’ll go to the bankruptcy judge in January.Dunphy says more meetings will be planned to inform Crestland membership of the New Generation plan. The Crestland Co-op has 18 elevators.
