Wonderful slideshow! Very informative. It's comforting to see that other communities struggle with the same things we do. Thanks so much for sharing. One thing I didn't see however is HOW you get everyone to contribute 6.5 hours per month plus 3-4 work parties per year. Is there some kind of "penalty" if someone doesn't do their hours?

Hi Laura,

I'd like to see your slide show.  I'm not sure you can call what we have at
CCH a system.   It is totally voluntary.  I have no pictures, but, if you
want I could describe what we do.
