Membership Drive

Dear Neighbor,

Just about a year ago the LenoxFive127th Street Block Association officially started its membership year. And what a great year it was!

Because of you, major milestones have been achieved.

  • The Urban Farm has arrived on the block.
  • We have had productive open forums with representatives from the precincts and with politicians at our monthly gatherings.
  • Our block has found a voice at the community board and precinct meetings.
  • We are beautifying and tidying the block and have received an important “Love Your Neighborhood Grant” that will be invested in a tree guard on the block.
  • And we have come together as a community to celebrate.

Now it’s time to start thinking about renewing your membership. You are part of a community and this community needs you. With a simple payment of only $25 per year, we can work together and bring great projects and big plans to life.

Every member strengthens the community. Become a member today or renew your membership. And please, lend a hand and sign up for a committee too. It’s through your active help and participation that big ideas will become a reality.

It’s easy and it’s only $25 per year.

  • Renew or sign up if you are a first time member at our website and pay through PAYPAL: – scroll to the “Dues” section for new member sign up or membership renewal
  • Or come see Katharina at the next BA meeting. There you can pay via Cash, Check, Credit or Debit Card.

And check out our committees and sign up – we need more hands to actively participate:
