Neighborhood Groups

Our neighborhood is full of people with lots of interests, but we know it can be hard to find others with similar interests who live nearby. To help make connections among neighbors with similar interests, we've created this page to list groups that are open to other neighbors joining. 

If you are interested in starting a new group (about any interest), please send an email to GreenwayDownsInfo@gmail.com. To join an existing group, reach out to the contact info below. The board doesn't manage these groups, but we are happy to connect group leaders and interested members.
