The latest edition of Cooperative Housing Quarterly features two articles about the ROC USA family.
The first an excellent article about Halifax Estates, a 430-home manufactured home community in Halifax, Mass., and the largest in our Network. Residents purchased the neighborhood in October 2017, helping secure the financial futures of the 700 retirement-age residents who live there.
Residents have been working with Cooperative Development Institute since the purchase process began and are doing amazing things not just in their neighborhood, but the community at large. For example, the Singing Seniors perform at local nursing homes and other institutions. An annual craft fair also raises money for residents to use to shop for children in need during the holidays.
ROC USA President Paul Bradley was featured separately in the publication as well. The piece on Page 9 talks about his upcoming induction into the Cooperative Hall of Fame. That ceremony will be held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on May 2.
Paul is one of four inductees who will be honored this year. The others are Rudy Hanley, retired president and CEO of SchoolsFirst Credit Union; Rosemary Mahoney, a cooperative business consultant; and Marilyn School, manager of CDS Consulting cooperative.
