The Soap Creek neighborhood newsletter via email has been up and running for four years now. It comes out a few times each month and contains information submitted by the neighbors themselves. There are notices of lost dogs (very successful!), advertisements of local produce and services, items for immediate attention, and details of meetings that people might like to attend. If you'd like to make sure you receive the "weekly" email neighborhood newsletter, send your own email address(es) to Nancy Hyde, nhyde@peak.org. She'll put you on the list!
