Getting up to speed with Getting it Built

At a lunch potluck meeting at Sooke Ocean Resort on March 11th, the 26 people in attendance reflected on the Getting it Built Workshop (held Feb 24-26) and considered plans for moving forward with a West Coast Senior Cohousing project. Eight hardy souls and one senior dog whetted their appetites with a pre-lunch walk on Whiffen Spit.

While the exact amount required for membership will be clarified — is it to be $100 per person or $200 per household? — other requirements are:

1. Members must have taken or commit to take a study group on Active Aging in Community. (Weekend courses may be an option.)

2. Members must pay $100 to receive the extensive report Ronaye Matthew prepared for the Getting it Built workshop and attend an information session to get up to speed. Anyone who was not already signed up to do this, please email Margaret <seniorcohousing@gmail.com> and plan to attend March 20, 2012, from 6:30-9:30 at the Reading Room Cafe (6660 Sooke Rd in Evergreen Mall next to Western Foods).

    HI
    Hoping to have gotten the same started here in the Fraser Valley, but thus far nothing is happening. I am so convinced this is the way to go, that I would a) like to connect re your plans and consider becoming a member myself, and B) am going to conference in California and would love to go with someone. Has anyone (or more) considered this.?there is $$ value in sharing the costs and would love to meet some more committed ‘burning souls’!
    Let me know!
    Thanks
    Liz
