Do you belong to any? Are you involved in other ways in your community?

We don't have a neighborhood association. The only community thing I'm really involved in is our brand new running club. I'm not a runner, though--I walk. ;)

 No neighborhood associations here.  We actually look for places without a neighborhood/homeowners association because we like to do what we want with the property that we own.  I don't want to ask anyone's permission to paint my front door red.

I am very involved in my community.  I am a cub scout leader, a PTA executive, a religious ed teacher at my church, and I am on a community development board.

I don't. We don't have either as far as I know.

No, there is no official neighborhood block club, but there are only about 7 houses on our street. We all watch out for each other and take care of everyone when we need it. My neighbor took care of my cat when I went on my honeymoon.

What a fantastic idea! It is so much easier to exercise when you have a support group.

If you are interested in forming one, I have some information (somewhere) from the Chicago community policing office. I will be happy to dig it up for you.
