RENO — What will it be like to live in a senior co-housing community with shared common places like a kitchen and living room? Claire and Bob Miller can give members of the public an idea as they present their knowledge about how a shared living community can improve the world, one neighborhood at a time. They are the scheduled speakers for the Feb. 29 Sunday Forum at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada.

Sunday Forums are slated to start at 9 a.m. and are open to the public including UUFNN members and non-members alike. The Millers will talk about their anticipated expectations for moving into Grass Valley’s Wolf Creek Lodge and some of the planning steps they have witnessed; occupancy is expected to start this fall.

Wolf Creek Lodge features some 30 units in a condo-style building with space for both singles and couples. There are common areas including a dining room, living room, kitchen and more, according to Bob Miller. Wolf Creek Lodge also features a shared patio and access to trails along Wolf Creek. More information can be found by visiting wolfcreeklodge.org; information on co-housing can be found at cohousing.org.

Each Sunday, UUFNN features a speaker at its Sunday Forum; this speaker shares his or her knowledge about a specific subject and its impact on the world. Sunday Forums are scheduled to occur just prior to the regularly-planned Sunday services starting at 10:30 a.m.

Upcoming speakers include Judge Patricia Barnes who will speak about workplace bullying on Feb. 5; Bob Fulkerson, executive director of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada or PLAN, who will speak about his experience with the Occupy Wall Street Movement on Feb. 12; and Kevin Murphy who will lead a discussion of Bill Moyers’ interview with Salman Rushdie on the question of faith and Reason on Feb. 19.

To find out more about this Sunday’s event, call Bob or Claire Miller at 530-205-5047. Forum Coordinator Kevin Murphy M.D. can also be called at 775-329-0333 for comments about this Sunday’s event or any of the upcoming scheduled forums.
