With reference to Kenobi65's post #25, I don't doubt that national membership in those organizations has declined. But locally, in my neighborhood, it has not happened, at least over the last 20 years. It's always possible that my neighborhood is 20 years behind the times (and it won't be the first time).

With reference to neighborhood associations, membership locally has increased over the past 40 years, probably because the number of residents and homes has increased, and formerly summer residents have been converted into year-round ones.

So I guess the moral of the story is: national trends and behaviors aren't universal, and generalizations, including this one, are always wrong.
