Linda, this is an exciting but demanding time for your community in
recruiting members and I wish you well!

I assume when you say you searched the archives for stories, you were
looking at the cohousing-l email list.

I encourage you to also search on the Coho/US website for
the tag line "stories."

I suggest looking at older posts (thus go to the bottom and click on 5 or
higher) since the most recent include more national focused stories than
you are seeking.

Also, many cohousing communities have excellent websites that include
stories about their community. I encourage you to click through the Cohousing
Directory <> and take a look!

Also, past issues of Cohousing Now eNews has a feature "living in
community," sharing stories, so you might want to look at past issues here

Good luck!
