Don't forget the fun factor!
By Rick Mockler
President, Coho/US

At Muir Commons in Davis, Calif., we recently completed a series of
ecret Valentine exchanges, an annual tradition of ours. Throughout the
second week of February, you'll find cohousers aged toddler through
grandparent sneaking in the dark, knocking loudly and racing away
before the residents can catch them. During a typically dreary time,
neighbors are surprised by fresh bagels in the morning, dark chocolate
or beer in the evening, jokes, rhymes or other gifts.

selection. While these other priorities are important too, everyone
will suffer the consequences if you don't complete the "sell out"
of your project.
