Seven Great Reasons to Join
1. You want to be informed on people and events that affect you, your family and your community
In today’s busy world, it is almost impossible to stay informed on the people and events that help shape your Village. The VRA brings speakers to you on topics that effect you, your family and your neighborhood. Topics have included street and sidewalk repair, emergency preparedness, the state of your town, your park system and its future, and local election candidates, just to name a few.
2. You want to meet your neighbors
It is hard sometimes to find a friendly and casual atmosphere within which to get to know your neighbors. Come to one of our bi-monthly meetings or join us at our Picnic on the Bricks, Golf Outing or other events. The VRA hosts events and meetings that provide you with an easy and informal way to meet your neighbors throughout the community.
3. You want a voice in your community
The VRA is dedicated to listening to your opinions and representing the residents of the Village in community affairs. Many VRA members serve in town government. We bring community leaders to you so that you can ask questions and make your opinions known. The VRA has represented Village residents and their concerns in matters such as historical preservation, traffic and zoning, just to name a few issues.
4. You want to serve
Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
– Anthony J. D’Angelo
We all know that we have a duty to service our community, but where do we start and what can we do? The VRA can provide you with a way to serve your community that will have an impact and take as little or as much time as you can spare.
5. You want to preserve what’s best in our village
Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got ’til its gone. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
– Joni Mitchell in Big Yellow Taxi
The Village provides a unique environment for you and your family. Where else can you live that allows you to walk to community library, ice cream shops, coffee shops, farmer’s market, quaint downtown, great restaurants, and a park where Lincoln once spoke on his way to the White House? What other neighborhood has such a large number of attractive and diverse homes that span an era from the Civil War to today? If preserving this is important, than the VRA is for you!
6. You like to have fun
“Fun is Good”. The VRA provides you with an opportunity to meet and enjoy some great people, your neighbors! Maybe you like participating in a hometown parade. If so, then help us carry the VRA banner in the Fall Festival parade. Perhaps your tastes are more culinary. If so, join us at the annual summer block party pitch-in.
7. It’s cheap!
Membership in the Village Residents’ Association is only $15.00 per person per year or $20.00 per family per year. You can’t beat that so join now!
