Community Living

Common Meals
Common Meals

A community meal takes place most Sundays at 6:00 PM in the Common House. Members who want to participate sign up to cook or clean up several times in a three-month cycle. There is a small fee for each meal. Dietary restrictions are honored.

We also have frequent potluck dinners, lunches, or breakfasts; and occasional “Dinner by Sixes” where members are organized into groups to share meals in members’ homes.

Summer and Winter Retreats

The annual summer retreat is a weekend getaway with recreational activities for adults and children:  hiking, swimming, boating, climbing, group games and more.

The Winter Retreat is held at the common house over two days with dining, dancing, art projects, and some offsite activities like bowling, hiking, skiing.
