McLennan Presentation a Success

       Last Friday's presentation by Jason McLennan at the Little Theater at Peninsula College, the first major event presented by the Center for Community Design, was a success!  It was attended by about 80 people, and was very thought provoking - generating some good questions and discussion.  Jason stayed an extra 40 minutes in order to continue the discussion while we enjoyed refreshments prepared by Carol Gentry.  Thanks, Carol!  He also took the time to sign copies of his book, The Philosophy of Sustainable Design.   This book is currently used as a textbook in over 60 universities and colleges and is distributed widely throughout Europe and North America.  We have about 10 more copies if you are interested in acquiring one.

2nd Friday Art Walk

On July 9, the Center participated in the Port Angeles 2nd Friday Art Walk for the first time. A good number of people stopped by...some that we knew and some new folks who were curious to find out what C4CD was all about. We shared refreshments, and had some great discussions.

People had a chance to look at the model of the Rayonier site (used as an exercise in the public process sessions), check out the design ideas taped to the walls, and view a 5-minute movie Mike put together, with a no-holds-barred concept for a Living Future village.

We'll look forward to doing this each month on the 2nd Friday, from 5:00-8:00pm.
