Baltimore-Washington Regional Coho Conf
From: Carrie Burmaster (
Date: Wed, 28 May 1997 15:17:47 -0500
Hello, everyone!  I wanted to give you all an update of how the Regional
Conference on June 7th has shaped up.  You're all invited to attend.  Come
on down!  If you want to come, please register *immediately* because
spaces really are limited (not a marketing ploy!).  You can e-mail me for
more information, or send a check with your name, address and phone number
to Jim Lane, P.O. Box 453, Libertytown, MD   21762.  We have some great
speakers lined up, and the topic for the day will be:  Cohousing--Living
the Good Life in a Modern Village.  We are very excited to have with us
the following folks:  Rob Sandelin, author of the Cohousing Resource
Guide, Chris Hanson, author of Cohousing:  Building a Place for Community,
Pam Silva from Southside Park, and Randa Nachbar from Pioneer Valley.
I've listed the program for the day below.  If you'd like to talk to me in
person, you can reach me at 410-328-8404 (day) or 410-377-4914 (eve).
Hope you all can join us!
