By Levern Allen
CommUNITY Living Co-Chair
As the CommUNITY Living Committee moves further into its mission of focusing on the joys and challenges of living in community, we decided it would be beneficial to restructure ourselves to better serve you. The committee has both residents and staff. The officers are Gary Hibbs and Levern Allen as co-chairs. Becky Griffin will serve as our program officer/vice chair and Bea Rodgers as the information officer. Our secretary is Jo Fannon. Other members of the committee have volunteered to serve on either the program or information committee. All members will serve a two year term. This new structure will allow us to be creative in our outreach to the community as we embrace this initiative.
We are reading and discussing Choosing Civility, The Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate Conduct by P. M. Forni. This will be our model as we create, adapt and promote programs and activities to integrate choosing civility into our everyday lives. Our relationships with others are invaluable. Creating more joys and solving the challenges of living in community will make us better neighbors.
