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 www.cohousing.org for the tag line "stories." http://www.cohousing.org/search/node/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 <http://www.cohousing.org/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 <http://www.cohousing.org/now>. Good luck!
