Welcome Weekend – July 22-24, 2011

2006 and 2007 – 16

2010 – 1

2011 – 2

What’s the significance of these years and tallies?

The dates represent the timing of CoHo Welcome Weekends–activity-packed episodes to meet and greet folks who were interested in becoming our neighbors.

The tallies represent the number of Welcome Weekends held in each timeframe.

After moving into our homes in 2007, Welcome Weekends halted as we shifted to unpacking, planting gardens, going to meetings (with a much shorter commute time), raising families, enjoying community meals, hanging out on The Path, and getting to know our neighbors.

In 2010, we revived Welcome Weekends and in 2011, we’re doubling up with two fun-filled weekends (February and July).

Here’s an overview.

And one more note….

There are many options to connect with community members during Welcome Weekend.  Visitors are encouraged to attend some or all of the events based on their interest and energy level.  Folks interested in actively pursuing membership need to attend one social event, the community meeting, and the Q&A session with our membership team.
