I have often wondered what social wonders Sunward ( Ann Arbor, MI) would 
manifest if we weren't so focussed on getting the weeding and the charter's 
done.  Working together is supposed to bring us together; I wonder what would 
happen if we just started with the being together.  I know that it would shift 
the mix of members to the more wealthy, as we would have to pay for those 
services, but what else?  Caren

Rumor has it that this is very true. A mile away we often hear of the  
wonderful social things EVC does. The one I remember was the older  
residents doing a series of talks/conversations with the children  
about what their life growing up 50+ years ago was like.

We are beginning to organize "celebrity  brunches" on Sunday morning 

where one member talks about their life and work. It's fascinating  
what we don't know about each other and how much people have to talk
