Nextdoor Elk Forest

Hi all!  The EFCA Board recently became aware of another way for our community to stay connected, via a private online network called Nextdoor Elk Forest.  On our Nextdoor site, neighbors can share community events, recommendations, items for sale, crime reports, ideas about how to improve our neighborhood and more.  I will use the EFCA email list to invite you to join.  

I signed up on Tuesday, and almost immediately received an alert from the Cecil County Sheriff's office regarding the route 40 closure due to the police activity there that day. Friends of one of the Board members, whose neighborhood has a Nextdoor site, related that their neighbors identified suspicious behavior in their neighborhood, resulting in arrests by the police.  
This email will also post to the elkforest.com website, and any resident who would like to be invited to join Nextdoor Elk Forest can send me a request with their email so that I can invite them.
