We don't have our CH built yet at RoseWind in Port Townsend WA. 
 Not every group would store all of these, but the list may remind you of 

My guesses:
holiday and special occasion decorations
canning supplies (jars, strainers, steamers etc)
games and sports equipment (badminton etc), craft materials
office supplies if you have there a computer, copy machine, or such
scissors, tape, staplers, rulers, etc
movie--slide show screen and-or projector; VCR and-or TV if you'll have 
them stashed 
videos and books; sound system if you use one for dances or such
PR materials for show and tell to visitors, or to take to a cohousing 
fair or such
archival materials-- rolled up maps and blueprints, files
light bulbs, toilet paper
meeting stuff- easel (s) , cushions for the chairs??, butcher paper

hand tools, extension cords
tablecloths, spare dish cloths, rags, etc
leftover building supplies that may still be needed someday (extra paint, 
tiles, flooring)
ladder(s) , stool(s)

My personal fantasy is that a common house would have the option of 
individuals or families having a sort of locker for their own stuff, 
could even be lockable, so a person could leave a laptop or guitar or 
needlepoint project at the CH securely.

I also fantasize about glass display cases which could be done in 
rotation by interested folks-- personal treasures, informational or 
artistic displays, stuff done by kids, etc. Now that we are squeaking out 
a common house budget, it seems unlikely, but who knows.
