Welcome to Elvehjem Neighborhood on Madison’s East Side

Block Captains Needed!

Block captains are needed to help deliver membership packets to their neighbors during the Spring Membership Drive. The task can be completed anytime during the month of April and only takes about two hours or one afternoon. Training will be held prior to the Annual Neighborhood Meeting at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church on Droster Rd on Saturday, March 25 from 9:15-9:45am. If you are able to volunteer please contact Jamie at 608-477-3955 or jamie@elvehjemneighborhood.org.
