The Smithers Cohousing Association has been moving steadily along. They have 10 committed households and property in sight. Now they are turning their attention to the next steps in the project — which is the training for the group to be able to work cohesively together to make the many decisions that will face them in the design and build stage.
Study Group 1 has 10 sessions being delivered over a couple of months, each session is two to three hours long. The first session is Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 6:30 p.m. The cohousing equity members are covering most of the cost of this training, but we would like to invite you to join us for a lower cost of $100 (per household, can be one or two people) for the entire 10 sessions. If you are interested, please let me know so we can have an accurate count for the facilitators. They are looking for four to six more committed households to take part in this great opportunity. Learn some great decision-making skills, working by consensus, teamwork, and how to make plans for your aging years ahead. There is still time to participate: Diane MacKay – firstname.lastname@example.org, 250-847-3998, Jim or Judy Senka – email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, 250 847 2597.
