Group Description

***NOT RESTRICTED. By accident the group is listed as restricted membership. It is NOT restricted. All memberships are approved but we do have to go through the process. No word on when this will be fixed. Yahoo has no technical support.***

This is a friendly, relaxed list for the Takoma Park neighborhood in Washington DC, and nearby, including Takoma Park, MD. All are welcome but messages should be related to the neighborhood or topics being discussed by residents. Please do not post commercial messages, press releases, class schedules, or solicitations. Please post informative messages, rather than "Me too" of "I agree" types. Please SELECT & DELETE TAILS of old messages from the bottom of yours so they do not grow longer and longer. Only quote what is relevant to your message.

New members are moderated to reduce spam. To encourage conversation, replies go to the whole list. Reply directly to the sender when appropriate by clicking their email address at the bottom of the message.

Attachments are removed, so paste information into your message, or better, a brief summary and web address.

Please identify yourself in your postings, and preferably the street or area in which you live; we like to know who's writing.

History: This list was started in 1997 for neighbors concerned about crime and hosted by Glenn Kowalski. In 2003, with 350+ subscribers, Sharon Villines took over and transferred the list to YahooGroups. In 2009, at 1300+ members, Richard Holzsager became co-moderator, joined in 2014 by Pam Ellison.

In 2014, with over 2465 members, discussion is still focused on neighborhood issues.
