Our Block Captains and other volunteers will be knocking on doors, getting basic contact information and email addresses to facilitate keeping you up to date, and asking you to join the SFNA for $20 for 2011! We'll also be distributing a packet with car identification stickers, neighborhood association information, important contact information and emergency numbers.
