From Jennifer

I've never led block club efforts, but did have a neighbor who hosted a few National Night Out potlucks a few years back. Prior to the potluck she created a one-page "plat map" of our block and some adjacent streets, and went door to door to collect names and phone numbers of homeowners. I put it in a three-ring binder with tabs for scout and soccer team rosters, school directories, etc. Over the years it proved very helpful when I occasionally needed to get in touch with a neighbor.
