Congratulations, Grace!

I can't remember if I posted the announcement or not but I was a judge!!!  (In 
a different category, obviously!)  When I looked at the criteria for this 
awards program I thought:  cohousing communities could sweep these awards.  
PLUS they have a really hard time getting enough entries so the competitive 
field would be to cohousing's advantage.

When the new Awards info is posted this year I hope more cohousing communities 
will enter.  I think the community has to have been finished w/in the last year 
to qualify so this would be for new coho communities.  But I'm not 100% sure!  

Congrats again, Grace!
