More on flyer distribution:

In addition to the places David listed, I would suggest childcare 
centers, schools, healthfood stores, Sr. Centers, city offices, car 
tune-up and repair places (where people are always looking for 
interesting reading material while they wait), libraries (some library 
networks will distribute your fliers to all branches for free!), coffee 
houses,  and drycleaners.  For the more adventurous, outdoor flyering on 
telephone poles on a friday afternoon in commercial/pedestrian areas 
makes a statement!

To find companies that will do the distribution for you, go to the 
healthfood store and pick up a couple of the free new age magazines and 
free real estate magazines and call the circulation office and ask them 
who does it for them, how much they pay, and whether or not they do a 
good job. We pay between $1-2/location, the company we hired was able to 
provide a list of thousands of locations from which we could choose. 

Don't expect immediate results. If you are doing it monthly, wait until 
the second month to guage any results, people can sit on them for a long 
time. Someone called me about meetings coming up in December that I 
haden't heard about, then I realized he was looking at last year's flyer!

Good Luck, 

Chris @ The Cohousing Center
