It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...

So I contacted the two organizations which operate in vicinity of my new digs: Willard-Homewood and Upper Willard-Hay. Technically I think I'm in Upper Willard-Hay, but the groups seem to work together, and they share an email list-serv.

I have to say, the emails I've received so far are unlike those of any other neighborhood org. I've been involved in. (And it's been a few.) People are soliciting casseroles for a couple who just had a baby, offering the use of a roof-rake in the wake of our snowstorms, and sending mass-invitations to a rehab-completion-party.

How cool is that???

I just had to share the warm fuzzy...

I'm on that listserv too - if you just joined, you'll be getting some even warm and fuzzier ones. I liked a few a while back about a man who really reached out to his "problem" neighbors in a very caring and approachable way. My kinda neighborhood. love it.

I am really very glad that such nice things are being said about the list serv. I hope the merging of the two lists was smooth for everyone. Let me know if there are any problems.
