Sherwood Forest Neighborhood General Meeting
The next general meeting of the Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association has been rescheduled from Tuesday, February 14 to Tuesday, February 21 to avoid conflicts with Valentines Day. The meeting will be held at the Sherwood Forest Presbyterian Church on the corner of Wilmot Avenue and Beltline Boulevard. Socialize with your neighbors from 6–6:30pm. The general meeting will be from 6:30-8:00pm. Submit agenda items or topics of discussion to the association president, Ed Tilden at president@sherwoodforestneighbors.org.

Meet the Candidates for the District Three Council Member seat!
Three of the four candidates for the District Three Council seat will be present to address the attendees and answer questions - Jenny Isgett, Moe Baddourah, and Michael Miller. Daniel Coble is not available that date, but already spoke to our group last meeting. Each candidate will have time to address the group, and then we will have a moderated Q&A session. This is your chance to get involved in the election process and make a difference!

Come and meet the candidates, and join us at 6pm to socialize with your neighbors before the meeting.

Also present at the meeting will be our neighborhood police officer, Nick Scott, to update us on crime and crime prevention in our neighborhood.

Volunteers Needed to help our neighborhood!
If you desire to contribute to our neighborhood association's success we need you to volunteer for one of our recently open officer and committee chair positions. We need a new Vice President and an new Membership Chair (Glen & Melanie Matthews are moving away), and we need a new Secretary. These positions are critical for our association, but the work involved is not that demanding.

Anyone who is interested in serving in one of these positions please contact the President, Ed Tilden, at president@sherwoodforestneighbors.org or by phone at 530-2436.

Our current officers and committee chair persons are listed at http://www.sherwoodforestneighbors.org/Article350.html

SFNA has several openings for block captains and co-captains. Block captains are the backbone of our organization, so please consider volunteering. For a map of our zones and current block captains, see http://www.sherwoodforestneighbors.org/html/pages/blockcaptainsmap.html

Twelfth Night Party January 6th
Our annual Twelfth Night Party was again a great success! SFNA thanks Regina Monteith for hosting and a host of neighbors for their support! Stay tuned for information about upcoming SFNA events.
