A few days ago a neighborhood friend and I decided to get a telephone list together for our street. I wasn’t sure how this idea would be received, but after distributing the flyer below, we were met with enthusiasm. In case you’d like to do this on your street, I thought I’d share our flyer with you. We stapled a tea bag in a corner with a yarn ribbon (cozy, huh) and tied them to front door knobs.
Have you ever wished you had a neighbor’s phone number so that you could call them, maybe tell them their escaped dog is in your backyard? What if you forgot someone’s name and want to say hello? What if something fishy is going on, like a computer is being loaded out their back window? We’d call 911 but would want to leave a message with our neighbor.
Our compiled list is intended only for residents on our street. Backed up by research, closely knit neighborhoods are safer because people take action, but they are also more fun.
If you would like to be listed and receive a directory, please email either of us in the following format:
Your house number
Children (ages optional)
Email addresses (optional)
If you email us, we’ll make fewer mistakes! Thank you.
(We listed our names, email addresses, and phone numbers.)
