I can think of two types of newsletters (at least), about which you might be asking: one to pass news to current members, another to be a device for publicity and recruitment. (Aside: I'd like to see archives of all types of newsletters be kept and made available through the new Cohousing Network, as one of the resources that come as a benefit of membership.) My community, Puget Ridge Cohousing in Seattle, did not have either type of newsletter. To handle the rapid flow of news among ourselves in the late development and construction time, for which a newsletter would have been too slow and too much added work, we used a voicemail service. We recorded a greeting that gave information to any outside caller, but the mailbox was not much used for outside contact. Any of us could leave a voice message in the mailbox giving an announcement or other piece of news. Each member had the password to the mailbox and could listen to the stack of messages, deleting old ones when no longer needed. It worked quite well in lieu of a newsletter. I recommend this system. -- Marci Malinowycz Puget Ridge Cohousing sodance [at] msn.com 206-763-2623 ---------- From: cohousing-l [at] freedom.mtn.org on behalf of Smith & McGowan Sent: Saturday, January 31, 1998 1:59 AM Subject: RE: newsletters Toni Smith from Creek's Bend Cohousing in Troy, NY wrote: Does anyone have samples of a community newsletter (in particular the pre-breaking ground) stage?
