Nothing really to add, sorry for delay.

We too use our Commonhouse extensively.  

Until Covid restricted use, we used our CH almost daily.  

Laundry used most days.

Meals 3 times a week

All kinds of parties

Committee Meetings— many

Community Meetings

Movie nights

Yoga classes

Meditation group (not for a while, even pre-covid)

Book group

Craft events

Art openings for our in-house Gallery

Informal socializing

Pumpkin carving

Cooking classes. (In the past)

I?m sure there are more I haven?t thought of.
