Dear Cohousing Community,

We hope you are all enjoying the summer.

We wanted to let you know about a special presentation Zev Paiss and Neshama Abraham are doing on Thursday, August 3 in Philadelphia as part of our East Coast tour (details below). Please note that the Philadelphia talk will take the place of the cohousing presentation we were originally planning at Eastern Village Cohousing on July 30.

Aging in Community in Philadelphia
Please join us for us for a talk on "Aging in Community" which will take place on Thursday, Aug. 3 from 7:30-9 PM at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Hotel (17th & Race St.). This is a special public presentation which is part of the Pioneer Network Annual Conference (http://www.pioneernetwork.net/news-and-events/ conferencemain.php) where we are also presenters. A dessert reception will follow the discussion.

We are part of a development team that is actively looking for a site in Philadelphia to create a cohousing village that can accommodate both a multi-generational and age-targeted cohousing neighborhood next to one another.

Other members of the Philadelphia development team include Don Tucker of Eco Housing Corp., developer of two award-winning environmental cohousing neighborhoods: Takoma Village Cohousing in Washington DC and Eastern Village Cohousing Silver Spring, MD; Tom Bath, an experienced builder and general contractor interested in building sustainable cohousing communites in the greater Philadelphia area; and Philadelphian Lynne Iser from Second Journey, a national organization dedicated to creating community in the second half of life.
