Wednesday, June 15 at The Other Barn
The Columbia Community Exchange (CCE), in partnership with the Oakland Mills Village Association, is hosting a coffee social on Wednesday, June 15 from 10 to 11: 30 a.m. at The Other Barn. Join current CCE members and interested residents for coffee, social visiting and the chance to learn about CCE, Howard County’s time banking program.
CCE is a community-building program that fosters neighborliness every day. Time banking values everyone’s contributions equally and encourages neighborliness. Membership is free and the concept is simple: members barter services. Spend an hour doing something for a fellow member in your community and earn a Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to buy an hour of another member’s time or service. It is a simple concept with profound effects that weave stronger communities, forge friendships and strengthen the daily fabric of life. CCE has more than 150 members offering a variety of every day services including rides to appointments, household help, phone pal and pet care.
