We look forward to serving up another hearty meal and meaningful story-circle program on Thurs., Feb. 2, 2017.

Doors open at 5 pm for setup; socializing begins at 5:30. Dinner runs from 6-6:45 pm, and then the program starts. If you would have time and be willing to volunteer to cook or clean up, please indicate this on the registration form. Clean up will wrap up by about 9 pm.

Please register and pay in advance so that the cooking team knows how much to buy and prepare. Prices include kids' rates and a family maximum cost. Feel free to forward this email and invite people you know.

Here is the registration link: registration form.

Join us after work for a family-friendly group meal, and get to know a few people who might become your new neighbors. Vegan and gluten-free options will be available.
Kristy, lead cook, has years of experience preparing food for large groups, and she keeps us organized.

"Getting It Built" weekend workshop
If interested, sign up asap!

When and how does a core group start figuring out the location of their future community? 

A fast-track group is forming to bring experienced cohousing architect Chuck Durrett and his associates to the Twin Cities for an intensive weekend "Getting It Built" workshop.

Anyone who is interested in living in cohousing sooner rather than later is encouraged to express interest by emailing the address below. Details will be provided to you. The goal of the workshop: to find and vet a site for a cohousing community. Tentative dates: Mar. 4-5, 2017.

If you are interested, you MUST email John Kalmon john@jpkalmon.com to get all the details and receive updates. Include your name, phone number and comments/questions.

The information you provide to John will only be shared with Durrett, The Cohousing Company associates, and the other individuals who sign up.

Please forward this newsletter to other people who might be interested in the workshop.
