Hello all —

I apologize for MY off-the-cuff remark about the new CohoUS brochure.  I said 
“Very nice, indeed.”  I had downloaded it, read it quickly and looked at the 
overall layout.   I didn’t spend more than 5 minutes reviewing it.  And then I 
went on about my busy day.

I honor Raines for taking the time and making the effort to review a very 
important document — one that may be a person’s first encounter w/ cohousing.  
His review of the new brochure points to the importance of everyone being 
involved in making CohoUS the best organization it can be by caring about what 
we do and how we do it.  CohoUS functions on the contributions of mostly 
volunteers.  Work gets done because we do it.   It’s important that we all chip 
in to make CohoUS a great organization.  

Already under Alice’s leadership we are seeing results — a new website, an 
upcoming conference, and now a new brochure.  Things are afoot in our 
organization.  But it will only do well if we do well by it.

Thanks, Raines, for the demonstration of what it means to be a contributing 
member to this list and to CohoUS.

P.S.  BTW —since we’re correcting things — this is a BI-fold brochure.  There 
are only 2 FOLDS in the brochure not three.  There are three PANELS on the 
front and three on the back.  Taking this to a printer you would ask for a 6 
panel, 2 fold brochure.  :-)
