That's why I started this thread by asking for an alternative to 
"living" since that is already taken. I also said that we'd be very 
happy to have an equally ideal one-word synonym for "community center" 
since we're more than just a museum. Best of all would be if that word 
starts with 'F' to fit our scheme of Festivals / Forum / ???? but I know 
that's asking a lot.
