Get connected TODAY with your neighborhood community here in Locust Grove!

The Locust Grove Neighborhood Association (LGNA) is hoping to get everyone in the neighborhood’s contact info, either email or phone no. so you can be in the loop about what’s happening in your neighborhood. (strictly private never for solicitations). This could be picnics, yard sales, house sales/rentals, community projects, etc. An email would be sent once a month at the most. It could also be to alert your household about a break in or something similar. There are two additional ways :

check out and “LIKE” our FaceBook page: Locust Grove Neighborhood Association

or visit right here where you are regularly,  our neighborhood website!

Do also take a moment to send your contact info to the LGNA secretary, Vicky Lee, at or call Cynthia at 434 960 7077 and tell her or leave a message. Then you will get neighborhood updates straight to your inbox ( roughly once a month, not all the time!).

Many thanks!!!
