Group Description

THIS GROUP IS NOT RESTRICTED. By accident the group is listed as restricted. All requests for membership are automatically approved. Yahoo has no technical support.There is no way to ask for it to be fixed.

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. Occasional 'for sale" messages are allowed from residents of Takoma, but only occasional. Please post informative messages, rather than "Me too" of "I agree." 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 asking about an item offered to list members or needing more information. Copy and past their address into the subject line.

Attachments are removed, so paste information into your message, or better, a brief summary and web address. No press releases except from city agencies.

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, was joined in 2014 by Pam Ellison.

In 2014, we had over 2465 members; in 2015, 2710. The focus on neighborhood issues is important to keep from being overwhelmed with everyone's marketing interests.
