Petworth Area Email Listservs

A listserv is an email list that distributes messages to a wide audience. You can subscribe to a listserv and choose to receive all messages or daily digest emails, and you can send messages to the group after you subscribe. 

There are many Yahoo and Google email listservs in the Petworth area. Some are public and easy to join, others are restricted and require new members to request access or ask permission to join. They're presented below in a loose alpha order. Any descriptions are taken directly from their Group pages. Note that you'll need to have a free Yahoo account or a Google account to use the listservs. 

Contact me if I missed any listservs that you think should be included.

This is a friendly, relaxed list for the Takoma Park neighborhood in Washington DC, and nearby, including Takoma Park, MD. All are welcome but messages should be related to the neighborhood or topics being discussed by residents. Please do not post commercial messages, press releases, class schedules, or solicitations. Occasional "for sale" messages are allowed from residents of Takoma, but only occasional. Please post informative messages, rather than "Me too" of "I agree." Please SELECT & DELETE TAILS of old messages from the bottom of yours so they do not grow longer and longer. Only quote what is relevant to your message. New members are moderated to reduce spam. To encourage conversation, replies go to the whole list. Reply directly to the sender when asking about an item offered to list members or needing more information. Copy and past their address into the subject line. Attachments are removed, so paste information into your message, or better, a brief summary and web address. No press releases except from city agencies. Please identify yourself in your postings, and preferably the street or area in which you live; we like to know who's writing.
