Sherwood Forest To Become Part Of Shandon
The Shandon Neighborhood has launched a hostile takeover bid for Sherwood Forest.

A spokesperson for Shandon said it seems like a natural expansion with horizontal integration synergies. "After all, real estate salespeople have been claiming the area is Shandon for years!"

An SFNA spokesperson opined that the Shandon moniker "resonated with residents" and will of course boost property values. The same spokesperson (or someone very similar) said it will eliminate the need to adopt a new slogan for Sherwood Forest. "Almost Shandon" or "Nearly Shandon" or "Not Quite Shandon But Close" were being considered. In addition to the Sherwood Forest annexation, Shandon will be annexing Shandon Annex.

Crier emails
We are making an effort to send out these informational emails around the first of every month to keep neighbors up do date on neighborhood events, and other events and information of interest. It's cheaper and better for the environment not to print and pass out fliers! But we could all probably use the exercise!

If you have information of interest to the neighborhood, please pass it along and we may include it in a future Crier.

Tell your friends and neighbors to subscribe. No membership required, but of course we would like everybody to join! New neighbor? Let us know and we'll send out the welcome wagon.
