Greetings All! On Thursday, May 22, 1997, Ann Arbor Cohousing officially broke ground on the construction of our community site. With a rainbow of kites flying overhead in the bright sun, we gathered on the land to mark this latest step in a long and visionary journey. Community members were joined by friends, family, political dignitaries, representatives from local co-ops, and the professionals involved with the project. Smiles were abundant. Kind words and excitement were expressed by many speakers and a State of Michigan proclamation from Senator Alma Wheeler Smith commending our efforts was presented. Everyone had a chance to take their turn with the ceremonial shovels and spades to turn a bit of earth. In the background the heavy earth moving equipment was grumbling about, moving much larger pieces of earth. Apparently the site construction team had been so excited by this project that they started their work a day or two ahead of our ceremony! Sparkling beverages and cookies followed with much joyous socializing. We then retired to a lovely dinner down the lane organized by the community. After a (relatively) brief business meeting, some of us returned to the land for some singing around a bonfire and were treated to the Full moon rising over the forest. Cheers, Michael ________________________________________________________________ Michael McIntyre Ann Arbor Cohousing Community 313-998-7140 www.ic.org/aacoho/ aacoho-info [at] umich.edu
