Glenview-Edgewood Manor Area Association
President's Report from Page 1
The association rules require that each member pay their dues. Our dues are only $12.00
per year. That's only $1.00 a month. That's a very little amount compared to other associations.
There are associations who have dues that amount to over $100 or more a year.
Your dues all go to help maintain the cleanliness, they pay for postage (mail outs), copier
expense, newsletter distribution, website purchase, events and functions for the neighborhood (National Night Out and Christmas Celebration).
The bottom line is that we all should care about where we live. A lot of us do care which is why we are involved. So if you haven't paid your dues or joined please do so as soon as possible. We, the board, receive no funds for ourselves; we do this because we care and we hope you do as well.
Please do your part no matter how small so that everyone will have a sense of pride and well
being for living in a clean and decent neighborhood. We should all be united in this effort.
On a final note I would like to extend a huge thanks to all of you that help out in so many
ways. A lot of what happens in this neighborhood could not have happen without your support.

Take part in your neighborhood,
The following Committees Need
- Newsletter Committee
What are the responsibilities?
To meet as determined by the committee and create guidelines.

BLOCK CAPTAINS NEEDED
We are looking for a few good people to fill block captain spots.
I am a block captain
and I chose this way of helping our neighborhood because it is not too time consuming (mostly short term projects).
Also, you can stay on top of what's going on.
You can shape this job to suit your schedule and your personal situation/ time constraints around volunteering.
I am including a list of components or possible activities associated with the position of block captain:
- Let neighbors in your area know who you are
- This is a one-time letter that could be left on their doors with your name and contact information.
- Report new people moving in
- Report problems to the board.
- Send out letters, notices, flyers
- Attend board and neighborhood meetings
- Board meets monthly
meeting and a couple of
other events from time to time such as National
Night Out and the Christmas Celebration
party which we have been hosting every year.
- Increase participation from neighbors just by being friendly, keeping them informed
- Get their input and take their calls
- Host neighborhood get-to gethers/Chair committee, etc.
- Optional and not something everyone has time to do but, occasionally, we elect to work on something like a one time GEMAA 40 year Celebration.
Please take care to watch for children playing in the street.
Small children should not be left unattended
