Elvehjem Neighborhood Annual Membership Drive Runs May 1-31

You may have already seen our fantastic block captains out and about in the neighborhood; perhaps you’ve had a brief visit with one of them as they knock on doors throughout the neighborhood. Please give them a warm welcome, as door knocking is definitely outside of many folks’ comfort zones! We have several new volunteers who have stepped up to help this year, and we could use a few more hands, so if you have an hour or two available to distribute membership packets to your neighbors, please contact Membership Drive Coordinator Mike Digman at mike@elvehjemneighborhood.org

Please take a few moments to fill out your membership form and return it either directly to your block captain, via postal mail (envelope enclosed in packet), or join online and pay via PayPal at www.elvehjemneighborhood.org/join Dues are only $15/year, and 100% of the money collected goes right back into YOUR neighborhood. Our membership goal for 2015 is 500 household members. Will you support Elvehjem Neighborhood and help us reach our goal? We’d love you have you as a member! And don’t forget, all households who join by May 31 are eligible to win a “Madison Night Out” featuring a $50 Great Dane gift certificate and two painting passes ($70 value) for Artful Escapes in Fitchburg.
