We in the Mary River Cohousing Community stay in touch with each other regularly as we work toward our goal of establishing Senior Cohousing in Corvallis. We use video conferencing for our working circles plus phone calls, emails and even a little planned outdoor social distancing at times. We continue to focus on finding a suitable site and on building our sense of community. Having the support of each other has been particularly rewarding. We hold Friday night "virtual potlucks" via ZOOM for those who are interested in our project and our community. We focus on getting ready for a time of action when the quarantine is finally lifted by studying compassionate communication and preparing ourselves for the challenges to come as we activate our project. We encourage those interested in cohousing to leave a message on our sign-up page and to pursue information to be found on the internet and through publications like The Senior Cohousing Handbook Edition 2 by Charles Durrett that can be found online.
