Please note that this news brief has been corrected. The print version incorrectly stated that “food, beverages, a cash bar and a 15 second action-oriented business-intro opportunity” was part of the Women’s Expo, when it is in fact part of the Networking/Fundraising Event.

I always enjoy the opportunity to share something new with our readers in my publisher letters. However, this month I am recycling a letter I wrote a year ago. Wayne and I will be leaving for a week’s vacation early tomorrow morning. Not to make excuses, but it’s been a busy week. I had planned to get this letter done earlier but, then, you know what they say about the best laid plans… This letter is about Charleston, one of my favorite cities, and it tells the story of two very remarkable women who lived there during the pre-civil war era. So, in the unlikely event you remember reading it, I hope you will forgive the repetition. I think it’s a story worth repeating and I hope you do, too.

As defined by Wikipedia, “An intentional community is a planned residential community designed from the start to have a high degree of social cohesion and teamwork. The members of an intentional community typically hold a common social, political, religious, or spiritual vision and often follow an alternative lifestyle.” According to the Fellowship for Intentional Community (www.ic.org) there are 160 intentional communities in the United States that have been “built from the ground up”. That is an apt description of Adawehi.
