Larkspur Neighborhood Member Volunteer Programs
The purpose of this program is to link people in our Neighborhood Association boundaries that can volunteer with those in our NA that need help. People needing help might be elderly, single parents, the ill, the needy... If you would like to volunteer or need assistance, please email the LNA Board. Become a member of Larkspur Neighborhood Association. It is easy to join; just fill out the Membership Form.
As a resident in our neighborhood, we want you to be a member. THIS MEANS RENTERS TOO!! Becoming a member costs nothing and makes sure your voice will be heard. Each person must complete a separate application. Members are allowed one vote only. Members in the neighborhood association include residents and businesses. If you have questions about the association or becoming a member, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not release your information without your permission. It is important that you fill out the entire application, because it is easiest for us to contact you by email. Our neighborhood does not charge dues, and mailing is expensive. If you own a business within the LNA boundaries, please indicate that in the comments section.
