Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Wide Yard Sale
The SFNA in cooperation with the Sherwood Forest Presbyterian Church will sponsor a neighborhood wide yard sale on Saturday May 14 from 8am to 1pm. Neighbors can set up yard sales at their homes, and there will be a central yard sale held at the church at the same time. Individuals may set up tables at the church and man the tables for the duration of the sale. People may also donate items to be sold for the benefit of eemodeling the nursery and playground at the church, and those items will be sold or taken to Goodwill (or other charity) at the end of the day.

The City of Columbia requires a $5 permit to set up in your yard.

The neigborhood association will advertise the event through various outlets.

SFNA Membership Drive 2011
The Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association is conducting a membership drive for 2011. Our dues are $20 per calendar year so now is the time to sign up for 2011! Our Block Captains and other volunteers will be knocking on doors, getting basic contact information and email addresses to facilitate keeping you up to date, and asking you to join the SFNA for $20 for 2011! We'll also be distributing a packet with car identification stickers, neighborhood association information, important contact information and emergency numbers.

What does the neighborhood association do? See for a list of some of our accomplishments over the past few years thanks to our members and volunteers. The more folks we get to join the SFNA and get involved, the more activities, benefits and 'neighborliness' there will be in Sherwood Forest!

For more information or to volunteer for the membership drive, contact SFNA's Membership Committee Chairperson Melanie Johnson, 227 Kalmia Drive, 546-6148,

Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so the $20 per year dues are tax deductible!
